The Rajasthan Government yesterday tabled the controversial ordinance that seeks to shield serving and former judges, magistrates and public servants from being investigated for on-duty actions without prior sanction.
The ordinance triggered widespread criticism with the Congress party creating ruckus in Rajasthan assembly against tabling of the bill.
The ordinance also sought to bar the media from reporting on accusations against the judges and bureaucrats till the sanction to proceed with the probe is obtained.
The ordinance is an amendment to the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973. (ANI)
