New Delhi [India], Nov 4 (ANI): The Central government on Monday sought more time from the Supreme Court to take an administrative decision on the appointment of Justice Akil Kureshi as the Chief Justice of Tripura High Court.
A bench of Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justice Surya Kant posted the matter for November 7 for hearing after Solicitor General Tushar Mehta sought more time.
The Supreme Court Collegium had on September 5 recommended the elevation of Justice Kureshi of Bombay High Court as the Chief Justice of the Tripura High Court, but the Centre is yet to give its approval to it.
In May earlier this year, the Collegium had recommended his elevation to the Madhya Pradesh High Court but later modified its order. (ANI)
