The Supreme Court on Tuesday dismissed a writ petition which sought judicial enquiry against former Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi in relation to an order passed in a case.

The petitioner, appearing as party-in-person, alleged that a bench led by ex-CJI Gogoi had dismissed his case in merely 10 minutes in a “dictatorial manner”. He alleged that the order was passed to unduly favour a corporate body.

The bench comprising Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud and Justice PS Narasimha told the petitioner that if he was aggrieved with the decision, he should file a curative petition. The hearing witnessed CJI Chandrachud and the party-in-person interacting in Marathi for sometime.

The labour court has held against you. You said High Court has been wrongly reversed. The review petition has been dismissed, then you have filed a PIL. Sometimes you get so angry. You have to file a curative petition now. That’s the only way. We have appointed one counsel for you to assist the court. We have taken detailed notes. File a curative petition”, CJI Chandrachud told the petitioner.

However, when the petitioner disagreed and stated that he “did not believe in curative petitions”, the bench dismissed the petition.
