Chief Justice of Odisha High Court Justice Amitava Roy has assumed charge as Supreme Court Judge. The collegium, headed by Chief Justice of India H L Dattu, had zeroed down on Justice Roy’s name. Chief Justice of Madras HC Justice S K Kaul and Chief Justice of Delhi HC Justice G Rohini were also in contention for elevation as SC Judge. The names of the Chief Justices of the High Courts of MP, Bombay and Calcutta were also discussed but only Jutice Roy’s name was approved for recommendation in the second week of February because the collegium failed to arrive at a consensus on the rest.
