Chief Justice of India Altamas Kabir retires today
Chief Justice of India Altamas Kabir retires on Thursday (18.07.2013) after a brief term of nine months. He was appointed a Supreme Court Judge on September 9, 2005. A stickler for discipline, procedures and rules, Justice Kabir had endeared himself to members of the Bar and the Bench with his humility. Like his predecessor S.H. Kapadia, he was reticent; throughout his tenure as Chief Justice, he avoided meeting journalists. Justice Kabir rendered several landmark judgments in the Supreme Court, especially those relating to human rights and election laws.
Justice P. Sathasivam, seniormost judge of the Supreme Court, will be the next and the 40th Chief Justice of India. Read more>>>>>Click Here
