New Delhi: The Supreme Court yesterday issued notice to West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee for removing her name as a respondent in a case questioning Sukumar Mukherjee’s appointment as chief adviser to the state health department.
A bench of Justice R M Lodha and Justice Anil R Dave issued notice to Banerjee on a petition that questioned why her name has been deleted from a case that pertained to a medical officer’s appointment.
The court clarified that the notice should not be construed as though the allegations made against Banerjee have credibility or otherwise. Holding that the high court had deliberately and actuated by extraneous consideration deleted the name of Banerjee, the apex court wondered what course it could adopt at this stage.
