CJI Ranjan Gogoi Writes To PM Modi For Impeachment of Justice Narayan Shukla

Chief Justice of India, Ranjan Gogoi has requested Prime Minister Narendra Modi seeking initiation of impeachment proceedings against Allahabad High Court judge Justice Narayan Shukla. Around 1.5 years ago former CJI Dipak Misra also recommended removal of Justice Shukla.

Justice Narayan Shukla wrote to CJI Gogoi requesting that he shall be allowed to resume his judicial work which was suspended in January 2018. Justice Gogoi, turned down the request and has now sought the PM to initiate motion in Parliament for the removal of Justice Shukla.

Charges of judicial impropriety were raised against Justice Narayan Shukla, where it was found that he had made handwritten corrections to an order passed by his own bench, to allow a medical college in Lucknow to take admissions.

An in-house committee comprising Indira Banerjee, SK Agnihotri and PK Jaiswal was constituted to probe into the charges. In their report, it was found that he had made handwritten corrections to an order passed by his own bench, so as to allow a medical college in Lucknow permission to take admissions. Further, it was alleged that Shukla also violated orders passed by the CJI Misra-led bench of the Supreme Court, which was hearing cases regarding the opening of medical colleges.

Misra advised Justice Shukla to either resign or take voluntary retirement. However, after the High Court judge had refused either, CJI Misra asked Allahabad High Court Chief Justice DB Bhosale to withdraw judicial work from the judge.
