Even thought of forming a committee to examine complaints against bureaucrats & police officers : CJI
Chief Justice of India N V Ramana said Friday that he had a “lot of reservations” on the “behaviour of the bureaucracy and police” in the country and had, at one point of time, even thought of forming a committee to examine complaints against them.
“We are very disturbed by what the bureaucracy, particularly police officers, are doing... I was in favour of forming standing committees led by Chief Justices of High Courts to look into complaints of atrocities committed by bureaucrats, especially police officers, in this country,” Chief Justice Ramana said in court.
These remarks from the CJI came in a case where additional director general of police in Chhattisgarh has sought protection from arrest from state police in three cases, including sedition and disproportionate assets.
