Here, lobbyist Niira Radia is chatting with Sunil Arora, former chairman of Air India and a serving bureaucrat. They are discussing corruption in the judiciary. Arora is telling her how judgements were fixed in the sealing cases in New Delhi when commercial areas and establishments in residential areas were sealed on the orders of erstwhile Supreme Court Chief Justice Y.K. Sabharwal. Arora informs Radia that a Delhi High Court judge, Justice Vijender Jain, was paid off Rs 9 crore in a sealing case by a middleman. The favourable judgement was written one month before it was delivered; the middleman was even given an advance copy. Justice Jain is referred to as Justice Sabharwal’s man.
Sunil Arora: Haan, ab to higher judiciary mein corruption bahut ho gayi na...
Niira Radia: Haan?
SA: Higher judiciary mein corruption bahut ho gayi na...
NR: Bahut zyaada, it’s like crazy situation...
SA: In the sealing cases, one chap had told me that he’ll get this judgement after one month.
SA: And he told me how much he had paid to whom.
NR: My god!
SA: I said, yaar, tum mazaak kar rahe ho. He said main aapko bata raha hoon ye judgement hai, and he broadly outlined the judgement...ki, this is to be pronounced after one month. To aap dekh lena, main khud hi copy le aaoonga uski...tab next time jab ho jayegi, woh le aaya copy.... He showed me, that order. He had paid 9 cr...as he claimed, at the residence.
NR: Kaun tha yeh?
SA: I mean this litigant had paid Rs 9 crore to that high court judge in Delhi.
NR: Good god!
SA: This is what he claimed...ki that I paid, at his home.
NR: Kaun sa judgement tha?
SA: Koi tha land deal, real estate ka.
NR: Pathetic ha? Yeh hai na, yeh Upendra Rai (a journalist) ka brother-in-law, jo bhi hai uska...cousin brother—Pradip Rai—yehi to kaam karta hai.
SA: And this gentleman ultimately became chief justice!
SA: Jisne judgement diya tha...he became CJ (chief justice), abhi retire hua tha, Vijender Jain, naam bhi bataa deta hoon.
NR: Haan, I know.
SA: Jo Sabharwal (CJI Y.K. Sabharwal) ka khaas aadmi tha.
NR: Haan uske upar to problem hua tha na beech mein?
SA: Nahin par woh (Vijender Jain) to ban gaya CJ (of Punjab and Haryana High Court), ab to CJ ban ke retire bhi ho gaya hai. Kya farak pada...

Sad, Indeed, Mr. Srinivas!
Worth a reading. The fact that Dr. APJ referred the file back to Govt. and nothing was done is another indictment of MMS and his lackeys. May also be the reason why they thought a pliant and dumb president was the order of the day and lo behold we have Pratibha with her immense talent as the first citizen of our country! Sad indeed!!!
Now can SC order a probe into the money made by Vijender Jain abusing powers as Judge of High Court and even if probe is ordered can anything be done to seize illgotten money of a former public servant to set an example. Every public servant in India is corrupt, without exception. Corruption in India is not a issue any more. Lets us all make all out efforts prosecute any honest person that we may find and charge then with offence of indulging in honesty and imprison every honest person for life. Democracy is based on will of majority. Majority in India is corrupt hence indulging in corrpution cannot be immoral.
>> the Supreme Court should be as vigorous in investigating itself as it is in investigating the 2G scam.
And then, what is the sanctity of the court monitored investigations?
And what do those, who oppose judiciary's footprints in the administrative/executive domain have to say about the SC monitoring cases, something that should strictly be out of their domain.
