    In the backdrop of gunning down of the four accused by Telangana police in an encounter, Chief Justice of India S A Bobde said that the recent events in the country have shaken the firm position of justice system as justice must never ever take the form of revenge and justice loses its character if it becomes revenge.

    "I believe the institution (judiciary) must correct itself and indeed it did during the time when the much-criticised press conference was held. It was nothing more than a self-corrective measure and I do not wish to justify it," Justice Bobde said during the inauguration of a new building of the Rajsthan High Court.

    Among the reviews listed for Thursday are five review pleas filed by the Muslims parties and one by a group of intellectuals.

However, the SC found Debadwar, Tavade and Kulkarni fit for elevation, keeping in view their excellent service records and the need for more judges, given the increasing pendency of cases.

    Congress leader Gaurav Gogoi said the bill is in violation of many articles of the Constitution and the basic spirit of the Preamble which talks of equality, liberty and fraternity. Claiming that the BJP is "digging a political graveyard" for its NDA allies from northeastern states, Gogoi appealed to those parties to vote with their conscience.

    The minister said there are 704 fast-track courts for heinous offences and others and the government is in the process of setting up 1,123 dedicated courts for POCSO and rape offences.
