Take up the matter with the Chief Justice first, the Supreme Court’s comment on the application for the dismissal of Satyendra Jain
The matter was raised in front of the Supreme Court on Thursday by Ashwini Upadhyay and demanded an early hearing. The petitioner said that the ED has registered a case against both the leaders and both are in judicial custody. Since both are public servants and law makers, in such a situation, after two days of judicial custody, they cannot continue in the office, a direction should be passed to sack them.
Raise the matter before the Chief Justice first – Court
Then the vacation bench headed by Justice CT Ravikumar asked the petitioner whether you have taken up the matter with the registrar. We are saying daily that the matter should be taken up with the listing registrar first. During this, Upadhyay told the court that one minister is in Maharashtra and is in jail, while the other case is from Delhi and the minister is in jail. Then the bench asked the petitioner to first take up the matter with the Chief Justice and only then we will hear. The matter may be heard next week. Such cases will first go before the Chief Justice and then the matter comes for list.
Both ministers jailed
It has been said in the petition that the minister is a public servant under Section 21 of the IPC and Section 2 (c) of the Prevention of Corruption Act. Temporary deprivation of office after being in judicial custody for more than two days as is done to IAS and other public servants. ED has registered a case of money laundering etc. against Jain, he is in jail. While a case of black money and money laundering has been registered against Maharashtra cabinet minister Nawab Malik and he is also in judicial custody.
