SC refuses to interfere with Gujarat top cop's appointment

January 13, 2009 11:48 IST

The Supreme Court on Tuesday refused to interfere with the appointment of P C Pande as the Director General of Police of Gujarat.

An NGO -- Citizens for Justice and Peace -- had in 2006 challenged the appointment of Pande as DGP, alleging that several complaints relating to post-Godhra riots were pending against him.

However, a bench comprising Justices Markandey Katju and V S Sirpurkar said the petition has become redundant.

The bench on Monday had reserved the order for today, saying that since the DGP was going to retire shortly, the NGO would be at liberty to approach the court again in case interference by him comes to light.
