New Delhi: Eminent lawyer Gopal Subramanium opted out of being considered for appointment as Supreme Court judge after lashing out at the Modi government accusing it of ordering CBI to “scrounge” for “dirt” against him to scuttle his elevation.
Subramanium, who had assisted the Supreme Court in the Sohrabuddin fake encounter case in which Amit Shah, a close aide of Prime Minister Narender Modi is now an accused, said that he was being “targeted” because of his independence and integrity.
He suggested that his role as amicus curiae, a friend of the court, in the Sohrabuddin case, could have been the reason for government opposing his elevation, although he had no direct evidence.
