The permission given by a division bench of the Allahabad high court to a Lucknow based medical college to admit students just three days after the Supreme Court rejected the plea has elicited strong reaction from the Apex court which called it a case of a ‘judicial Indiscipline’ as it minced no words to reprimand the judges for violating judicial propriety.
A bench of Chief Justice Dipak misra and justice A M Khanwilkar and D Y chandrachud expressed ‘shock’ on how could the HC virtually overrule the apex court order and slammed the judges for passing the order ‘for some unfathomable and inscrutable reason’, a deviation which has the ‘potentially to take justice to coffin.
The bench noted that the SC had on august 28 restrained the HC from passing any interim order in favour of the medical college for the current academic year. HC however allowed the college to admit students for 2017-18 batch on September 1 without waiting for the response from the centre and Medical council of India.
