CJI condemns reckless behaviour

Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi on Sunday said the present times are witnessing “belligerent and reckless behaviour” by a few individuals and some groups.

He expressed optimism that such developments are just “exceptions” and will be defeated by the strong traditions of the country’s legal institutions. “I am hopeful that such incidents would turn out to be exceptions and that the strong traditions and ethos of our institution shall always assist our stakeholders to display resilience to overcome the belligerence of such wayward constituents,” Gogoi said after laying the foundation stone of an auditorium of the Guwahati High Court here.

The CJI said unlike offices or establishments of the government, courts are unique with multiple stakeholders converging every day to facilitate and make the wheels of justice move forward, even though they may not be bound by any single hierarchy of commands.
