New Delhi, September 27

The Delhi High Court on Monday reserved its verdict on a petition challenging the appointment of Gujarat cadre IPS officer Rakesh Asthana as Delhi Police Commissioner.

A Bench led by Chief Justice DN Patel reserved its verdict after hearing petitioner Sadre Alam’s counsel BS Bagga, Centre for PIL counsel Rakesh Asthana, Solicitor General Tushar Mehta for the Centre and senior counsel Mukul Rohatgi for Asthana. Questioning the bona fide of the petitioner, Mehta said, “PIL is an industry, a career by itself, which was not envisaged…” Mehta alleged that the petitioner was a proxy for somebody who didn’t want to come in the front and held “personal vendetta”. — TNS
