Hear Justice Dinarakan out
This blog has closely followed the journey of Justice Dinakaran from probable elevation to possible impeachment.Regardless of his guilt or innocence, how fair has the system been to him ? In today's The Indian Express, I have written an opinion piece arguing that Justice Dinakaran has been denied the procedural right to be heard, and this denial is the result of the higher judiciary's own choice to be insulated from scrutiny. That insulation, I argue, cuts both ways.
