Remove Justice Aftab Alam from Gujarat cases:Justice Soni to CJI

Ahmedabad, 27 July 2012

Former Judge of Gujarat High Court and former Lokayukta of Gujarat state Justice S.M.Soni has written a letter to the Chief Justice of India to keep ‘communal mindset’ justice Aftab Alam away from Gujarat cases.

Justice Soni has submitted facts and quotes showing communal mind set of Justice Aftab Alam, and has requested to transfer all matter related to Gujarat before any other bench.

Justice Soni has in his 10-page letter to CJI S H Kapadia requested that the letter should be treated as a Public Interest Litigation(PIL). He has also requested to stay the further hearing of all criminal cases in which Gujarat government is a party and are being heard by Justice Aftab Alam.

The original draft of the letter is embedded here.
