Setalvad’s plea given to new bench: Supreme Court

The Supreme Court on Monday stepped into the row over the transfer of activist Teesta Setalvad’s anticipatory bail plea to a new bench, saying it was done after one of the judges of the previous bench recused from the case.

Referring to news reports that Chief Justice of India H L Dattu had transferred Setalvad’s plea to a bench headed by Justice Dipak Misra despite the fact that neither of the judges of the previous bench, justices S J Mukhopadhya and N V Ramana, had recused, an apex court registrar said it has “no basis or substance”.
