The four Justices Madan B. Lokur, Kurien Joseph, Ranjan Gogoi and Jasti Chelameswar questioned the conduct of the CJI, saying that their efforts have failed in convincing the latter to take steps to protect the institution.

CJI Misra is likely to hold a meeting with the four Judges as well, and is expected to address the press later in the day.

One of the four judges, Justice J Chelameswar leaving from his residence earlier in the day increases the likelihood of such a meeting.

Meanwhile, Principal Secretary to Prime Minister, Nripendra Misra was also seen outside CJI Misra's residence in Delhi.

Supreme Court Bar Association will also be holding a meeting over the same and will address the press, later today.

Yesterday, the four Supreme Court judges addressed the media, appealing to the nation to save their institution if they wanted democracy in the country to survive. (ANI)
