Passed Order To Help Son's Client: Complaint Against Justice D. Y. Chandrachud
A complaint has been filed against Justice D. Y. Chandrachud before the President of India by one R.K.Pathan, claiming to be the President of the Supreme Court & High Court Litigants Association of India.
The complainant has also arrayed the Advocate Abhinav Chandrachud, the son of Justice Chandrachud who is practicing before the Bombay High Court, as an accused.
The complainant says that Advocate Abhinav Chandrachud is representing one Sagar Suryavanshi and one Sheetal Tejwani who are allegedly the masterminds behind a crime for which FIR No. 806 of 2019 has been registered at Pimpri, Pune, involving extortion of money from people. "..in relation to the FIR No. 806/2019, Adv. Abhinav Chandrachud appeared on behalf of Sheetal Tejwani in Writ Petition No. 3093/2021 which is connected with various Writ Petitions such as Writ Petition No. 4134 of 2019", the complaint says.
The complaint says that the main accused Sagar Suryavanshi also filed one intervention through one Anita Chavan in relation to a similar chain of FIRs by making her a complainant, which was rejected by the High Court.
"Having perceived an adverse atmosphere and having realized that their plan to commit extortion is failed, all the accused including Adv. Abhinav Chandrachud and Justice D.Y. Chandrachud hatched a further conspiracy to exert pressure upon the other Petitioners & also upon the High Court. In furtherance of the said conspiracy said Anita K. Chavan has filed a total bogus Petition before the Supreme Court. [SLP (Crl.) No. 9131 of 2021]", the complaint says.
The complainant says that the said petition was ex-facie bogus as it was based on the false claim that there is one application filed by the state for vacating the stay granted to the Petitioners and that the Bombay High Court is not hearing the said application. In fact, there is no application filed by the state and the state has not approached the Supreme Court, the complaint says.
"On 29.11.2021 the matter came up for hearing before the Bench of accused Justice Dr. D.Y. Chandrachud. Then as a part of a pre-planned conspiracy, Justice D. Y. Chandrachud without hearing the Counsel for the state and without issuing any notice to the other parties straightaway passed a blatantly illegal order regarding a non-existent application allegedly filed by the state. This was done to serve the ulterior purposes of his son and other syndicates of the mastermind extortionist accused Sagar Suryawanshi", the complaint says.
The complainant says that Justice Dr. D.Y. Chandrachud was disqualified to hear any case where his son is representing any of the parties. "But then also he heard the matter and passed the order beneficial to his son's client. This is an offence under sections 166, 219, 409, 120(B), 34 & 52, etc., of the Indian Penal Code"; the complaint says.
The complaint also says that Justice Chandrachud passed the orders favouring Covid-19 vaccination, "giving wrongful profits of thousands of crores to vaccine companies".
In addition to seeking registration of FIR under various provisions, the complainant also seeks "Directions to appropriate authority to file a contempt petition in the Supreme Court" and "Directions to Directorate of Enforcement(E.D.), Income Tax Department, Central Vigilance Commission, Intelligence Bureau, and all other agencies to investigate the links and commercial transactions of the accused with anti-national elements like Bill Gates, George Soros, and others.." and "Direction to appropriate authorities to make a request to the Hon'ble Chief Justice of India to exercise the powers as per 'In-HouseProcedure'..".
The complainant also wants Chief Justice U. U. Lalit not to recommend the name of Justice D.Y. Chandrachud for the post of Chief Justice of India.
Incidentally, it was yesterday that the Law Minister sent a letter to Justice Lalit for sending his recommendations for the appointment of his successor, as per the MoP on the appointment of Chief Justice of India and Supreme Court Judges.
The SLP referred to in the complaint was disposed of by the Bench of Justice D. Y. Chandrachud and Justice A. S. Bopanna by an order of November 29, 2021. Senior Advocates Rebecca John and Siddharth Aggarwal had appeared for the Petitioner Anita Kishore Chavan. The Bench disposed of the petition directing "the High Court to take up the petition for expeditious disposal, preferably within a period of three months of the receipt of a certified copy of this order. In the event that due to the exigencies of the work it not possible to do so, the High Court is requested to take up the application for vacating the stay at an early date, within the same outer limit".
