Lalu wants to speak to SC in confidence

May 03, 2005 18:02 IST

Railway Minister Lalu Prasad Yadav on Tuesday sought the Supreme Court's permission to 'communicate' to it 'in confidence' his apprehensions on the composition of a Patna high court bench that will hear his petition challenging sanction for his prosecution in a disproportionate assets case.

The apex court, while asking the high court to constitute a bench headed by Justice Aftab Alam, said the name of the other judge would be added later.

Justice Chandramauli Kumar Prasad was named as the second judge of the bench that was asked to dispose of Lalu's petition.

Lalu said he had no objection to Justice Alam being part of the bench. He said it was true his counsel did not object when one of the two names was mentioned.
