Four senior Supreme Court judges -- J Chelameswar, Ranjan Gogoi, M B Lokur and Kurian Joseph -- had on Friday mounted a virtual revolt against the CJI at a press meet here, raising questions on "selective" case allocation and certain judicial orders, sending shockwaves across the judiciary and polity.
Two top court judges -- justices S A Bobde and L Nageswara Rao -- also met Justice Chelameswar, who had led the four judges in the unprecedented press conference on Friday at his official residence here, sources said.
The meeting of these judges took place soon after the seven-member delegation of the BCI, the regulatory body of lawyers, met Justice Chelameswar at his residence to discuss the crisis that has hit the judiciary.
A BCI source said that the BCI delegation's meetings with the judges will be on till late in the evening as some of the judges are away from Delhi.
