Delhi HC rejects plea challenging CJI DY Chandrachud’s appointment

New Delhi: The Delhi High Court on Friday dismissed a plea challenging the appointment of Supreme Court Justice DY Chandrachud as the Chief Justice of India (CJI). The court also imposed a fine of Rs. 1 lakh on the petitioner.

The Delhi High Court bench, consisting of Chief Justice Satish Chandra Sharma and Justice Subramonium Prasad, pronounced the verdict while observing that the plea is not a public interest litigation (PIL) but a “publicity-oriented” petition.

Sanjeev Kumar Tiwari, president of an organisation named Gram Uday Foundation, had moved the petition objecting to the appointment of the CJI.
