SC Dismisses Plea Against Rakesh Asthana

The SC has dismissed a petition against the appointment of former CBI special director Rakesh Asthana as director general of the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS).

The petition was dismissed by a bench headed by CJI Ranjan Gogoi.

Rakesh Asthana was appointed as the BCAS chief on January 18 by the Centre.

The petitioner, advocate ML Sharma, had challenged the appointment, citing a pending first information report against Asthana on bribery allegations. The Delhi High Court had on January 11 refused to quash the FIR against Asthana.

The bench dismissed the petition, saying multiple causes of action were combined and added that, “one having no connection with another”. One of the reliefs sought might be in the realm of jurisdiction of service tribunal.”

The CJI further said that while hearing the plea, said some level of discipline has to be maintained in petitions. “You cannot bring everything under the sun in an Article 32 petition”.
