Suvendu moves SC, wants case shifted out of Calcutta HC | India News – Times of India


NEW DELHI: BJP member Suvendu Adhikari filed a petition in the Supreme Court on Wednesday urging it to transfer the election-related case to any of the high courts for the “ends of justice”.
In his petition, Adhikari quoted portions of Justice Kausik Chanda’s order while recusing himself from hearing the matter in which the judge noted that “chronology of events” suggested “that a deliberate and conscious attempt was made to influence my decision before the recusal application was placed before me for judicial consideration on June 24”. Adhikari pointed to efforts to “influence” decisions in the Calcutta HC as grounds to seek transfer of the Nandigram election-related case to any other HC.
