Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy.
THE Delhi High Court Bar Association (DHCBA) Saturday, in a problem to the Commissioner of Authorities, stated that members of its Executive Committee, including the bar president, received risk calls not long after they passed a resolution condemning Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Jagan Mohan Reddy s accusations versus Supreme Court judge Justice N V Ramana.
Reddy in his letter earlier had alleged that Justice Ramana has been influencing the sittings of the (Andhra Pradesh) High Court consisting of the lineup of couple of Honourable Judges. The letter also described Justice Ramana s alleged proximity to the TDP leader and former Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu
In the resolution on October 14, the DHCBA said that the writing of the letter by Reddy and its blood circulation in public domain is an unethical attempt at overawing the judiciary. It even more said that the letter unjustly and without reason casts aspersions on the supposed conduct of Justice Ramana and the judges of the Andhra Pradesh High Court.
In the grievance mailed to the police on Saturday, DHCBA Honorary Secretary, supporter Abhijat, said he received a call on his smart phone on October 15 and the caller, who identified himself as the Secretary of the Indian Association of the United Kingdom, notified him that he was calling from London. Soon after asking Abhijat about the resolution, the caller began abusing him in Hindi, according to the complaint.
Ghar se bahar dyan se nikalna, bade accident ho jaate hain[Be careful when you step out, major accidents tend to take place], the caller told Abhijat based on the problem. The caller is also stated to have informed him, teri to hum tange tudwa denge, tujhe pata nahin tu kin logon se baat kar raha hai[we will break your legs, you have no idea whom you are talking to].
President of the Bar Association and senior supporter, Mohit Mathur and Treasurer of the Bar Association, supporter Mohit Gupta likewise got comparable threats, Abhijat said in the problem.
The resolution was released under Abhijat s signatures as the Honourary Secretary of the DHCBA.
The threat to my life and limbs by the caller was plainly to make me desist from discharging my duties as the Hony. Secretary of the Delhi High Court Bar Association with sincerity and without fear. The stated threatening call likewise threatened the independence of the judicial organization of which I belong of, being an officer of the Courts, the complaint specified, while seeking investigation into the matter.
