The Supreme Court Collegium on Friday recommended Justice Aniruddha Bose of the Jharkhand High Court and Justice AS Bopanna of the Gauhati High Court for elevation to the Supreme Court.
"While recommending the names of Mr. Justices Aniruddha Bose and A.S. Bopanna, the Collegium has taken into consideration, apart from their merit and integrity, combined seniority on all-India basis of Chief Justices and senior puisne Judges of High Courts.
