sikkim governor with Chief Justice
New Delhi, June 1 (IANS) The Supreme Court Wednesday reserved its verdict on a petition by Sikkim High Court Chief Justice P.D. Dinakaran challenging the framing of charges by the Judges Inquiry Committee (JIC) probing allegations of corruption, land grabbing, disproportionate assets and misbehaviour against him.

Justice Dinakaran has contented that the JIC has framed the charges beyond the scope of its jurisdiction.

An apex court bench of Justice G.S. Singhvi and Justice C.K. Prasad, while reserving the verdict, said the JIC was not merely a post office to forward the charges contained in the notice of the impeachment motion against Justice Dinakaran.
