The Supreme Court said today a bribery allegation against a retired judge needed to be heard urgently.
The Supreme Court on Thursday started hearing a petition to seek a special team to probe allegations of bribes to judges but later referred the case to a Constitution Bench comprising the court's five senior-most judges. The Constitution Bench will take up the case on Monday, November 13. The petition, filed by senior lawyer Kamini Jaiswal, is linked to a case filed by CBI against an ex-judge of the Orissa High Court, Justice IM Quddusi. He was arrested
and released on bail in September.
