A vacation Bench, comprising Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justice Aniruddha Bose, directed for extension of Justice Jain's tenure for one year or till the process of fresh appointment was completed.
"On due consideration, we grant extension of time by one year or till the process of fresh appointment is completed, whichever is earlier," said the court.
