New Delhi, April 26 (IANS) The Supreme Court on Thursday said it will consider the plea of a lawyer who alleged that various politicians and advocates were making contemptuous allegations against the judiciary.
A bench of Chief Justice Deepak Misra, Justice A.M. Khanwilkar and Justice D.Y. Chandrachud posted the matter for hearing next week.
Advocate Gaurav Bhatia, also a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) spokesperson, mentioned the issue before the bench saying politicians and advocates have been making comments against the Supreme Court and judiciary on social media and news channels.
Seeking contempt action against lawyers and politicians, Bhatia said they have defamed the judiciary by making adverse remarks against the apex court.
