New Delhi, Apr 23: In a first-of-it’s-kind, 30 of the 33 Supreme Court Judges heard 50 review petitions and disposed them off on Thursday.
The hearings were neither held in open court, nor through video-conferencing.
From March 25, the Apex Court was conducting video conferencing of cases, that needed urgent and expeditious hearing, in view of the Novel Coronavirus pandemic.
The petitions were heard and disposed off in the chamber, without the presence of any lawyer and parties in the case.
Out of the 50 review petitions heard and disposed off, CJI Sharad Arvind Bobde took up four cases, whereas Justices Uday Umesh Lalit and L Nageshwar Rao heard around eight.
