SC issues notice to lawyer Prashant Bhushan

November 06, 2009 19:34 IST

The Supreme Court on Friday issued contempt notice to noted lawyer Prashant Bhushan for allegedly casting aspersions on some of the judges, including a senior most apex court judge and previous Chief Justices of India in an interview to a news magazine.

Bhushan in an interview to Tehelka had made remarks against Justice S H Kapadia who is next in line to be the Chief Justice of India.

He alleged that Justice Kapadia, being a member of the Forest Bench along with Chief Justice K G Balakrishnan, should not have heard the matter relating to Vedanta Sterlite Group as he held shares of the company.

The court also issued notice to Tarun Tejpal, Editor-in-chief of Tehelka, and posted the matter for hearing before a Bench not having Justice Kapadia as its member.
