Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra and other Supreme Court judges on Monday held a longer-than-usual morning meeting, leading to a delay of about 15 minutes in starting the proceedings in all the courts, amid speculation that they discussed the notice to remove the CJI and its rejection.

The usual morning meeting of judges coincided with news emanating from the office of the Rajya Sabha Chairman that he had rejected the notice to remove the CJI with point-wise rebuttals after consulting legal experts.

Litigants, lawyers and journalists, having their eyes on the clock, were seen murmuring about the possible reasons for the delay in starting of court proceedings in the CJI's courts.

All the courts began work at around 10.45 am instead of the scheduled 10.30 am.
