New Delhi The Supreme Court’s First Bench consisting of Chief Justice K.Balakrishnan, Judges Raveedran and Dalbir Bhandari today disowned the Committee of Eminent Persons, appointed by the Government of India in the Sethusamudram Canal Project matter, which committee is to suggest a new counter affidavit to be filed iby the government in the Supreme Court by mid-December. The CJI observed that the apexcourt did not constitute the said committee and therefore is not interested whether it is biased or not. The CJI further observed that when the matter comes up in January 2008, I would beat liberty to raise all objections to the Committee at that stage before the Court if the Government relies on the committee’sreport.

I had in my Interlocutory Applicationsaid that the Committee was biased and rigged, and since it’s formation was announced by the Additional Solicitor General in Court, direction ought to be given by the Bench to quash the present committee and a new unbiased committee should be set up.
