BJP leader Suvendu Adhikari files case transfer petition in Supreme Court | Kolkata News


KOLKATA: BJP leader Suvendu Adhikari filed a petition in the Supreme Court on Wednesday, the day the Calcutta high court issued him a notice on CM Mamata Banerjee’s election petition challenging the Nandigram assembly poll result.
Adhikari urged the apex court to transfer the election-related case to any of the high courts for the “ends of justice”.
In his petition, Adhikari quoted portions of justice Kausik Chanda’s order while recusing himself from hearing the matter in which the judge noted that “chronology of events” suggested “that a deliberate and conscious attempt was made to influence my decision before the recusal application was placed before me for judicial consideration on June 24”.
The BJP leader invoked the SC’s powers under Article 139A (2) of the Constitution under which the court, if it deems it expedient to do so for the ends of justice, may transfer any case, appeal or other proceedings pending before any HC to any other HC.
