Actress attack case: SC dismisses plea seeking to change judge
New Delhi: The Supreme Court has dismissed the petition moved by the state government seeking to change the judge in the trial court over the actress attack case.
A bench headed by Justice AM Khanwilkar dismissed the plea after the hearing on Tuesday.
The SC observed that the state government is raising baseless allegation against the judge and it will affect the judge’s confidence.
The judge will be pressurized as it is a controversial case. The government should not make such negative remarks against the judge or court, observed the SC.
Meanwhile, SC has granted time for the government to appoint a new public prosecutor in view of the resignation of the public prosecutor in the actress attack case.
