An action-packed Thursday will cap a hectic week for the Supreme Court as Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi looks to clear all the cases in front of him before he retires from office. On Thursday, the Supreme Court will pronounce its verdict on review pleas challenging its Sabarimala judgment, pleas seeking a review of the court giving the Centre a clean chit in the Rafale deal, and a contempt plea filed against Congress MP Rahul Gandhi for his “chowkidar chor hai” remark.
CJI Ranjan Gogoi, who retires on November 17, is part of all these cases. Thursday’s cases are among several other important cases that were before benches headed by CJI Gogoi. Verdicts in those other cases were pronounced in the last few days.
