Supreme Court shows itself in poor light by not including Akil Kurashi in list of 9 judges: Soz

Srinagar, Aug 30 (KNS): Senior leader and former minister Prof. Saif-ud-din Soz Monday said that the Supreme Court of India has shown itself in poor light by not including Justice Akil Kurashi in the list of nine judges that the collegium has recommended to the government.

In a statement, issued to Kashmir News Service (KNS), Soz said that the general run of people in India, including a vast majority of judges and advocates in the country have seen this decision as a great injustice to a judge, who is known very widely in the country for his integrity and acumen in law.  

“The Supreme Court has acted in tandem with the Central government deliberately, as it knew that one of the most important members of the Union Cabinet would feel uncomfortable with Mr. Akil Kurashi’s appointment,” he said.

Soz said that knowledgeable people in India’s Judicial System feel that the government will face tremendous criticism for its impropriety in the days to come. (KNS)
