Supreme Court of India Resolves Conflicting Orders

Investigation into conflicting orders issued by two benches of the Calcutta High Court regarding medical college admissions has been undertaken suo motu by the Supreme Court of India. For the purpose, there will be a special sitting attended by the Chief Justice of India and four other senior judges.

Origins of the Conflict

The root of the situation can be traced back to a single bench order calling for a CBI probe into alleged fake certificates for medical college admissions, which was subsequently stayed by a division bench. The ensuing conflict resulted in a CBI case registration, personal remarks from the single judge, and later, an instruction from the division bench to the CBI to halt further proceedings and return all documents to the state counsel. The intervention of the Supreme Court aims to rectify these conflicting decisions and ensure the correct legal procedure is followed.
