Collegium recommended names despite adverse reports: SC told

The Supreme Court collegium recommended and reiterated the appointments of people as judges despite adverse Intelligence Bureau reports and judges' critical comments against them, the central government on Wednesday told the apex court.

Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi on Wednesday submitted to the court a list of a few names running into 10 pages with comments from the Intelligence Bureau, the government and the apex court judges to drive home the point that when the collegium insisted on such recommendations, the government was bound to accept them.

"Sometimes, we are forced to choose somebody" that the collegium has recommended and reiterated despite adverse IB reports and critical comments by the apex court judges, Rohatgi told the court.

The government furnished the information to the court after it sought to know that in how many cases the collegiums reiterated recommendations despite adverse reports and government returning them.
