Actress assault case: SC dismisses plea seeking change of judge

New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Tuesday dismissed the petition moved by the state government seeking to change the judge in the trial court over the actress attack case.

The court observed that the state government is raising baseless allegation against the judge and it will affect the judge’s confidence.

"The judge will be pressurized as it is a controversial case. The government should not make such negative remarks against the judge or court", the court observed. Meanwhile, the Apex court has granted time for the government to appoint a new public prosecutor in view of the resignation of the public prosecutor in the case. Asianet Online
