Details are now emerging about how Justice Jagdish Bhalla was promoted as the Chief Justice of the Himachal Pradesh High Court despite allegations of corruption against his family members.
It seems that while ordering the transfer, Law Minister HR Bhardwaj ignored complaints by two sitting Chief Justices.
Sources have told NDTV that information about his family being involved in a land scam was removed from the file that went to the President.
A day after his elevation, parliamentarians and some eminent lawyers are seeking Justice Jagdish Bhalla’s impeachment.
