The Bar Council of India (BCI) has lashed out at Justice J. Chelameswar for what it called his “controversial” and “irrelevant” statements in the media, three days after his retirement as a Supreme Court judge.

Justice Chelameswar, who demitted office on June 22, had disapproved of the Centre’s decision not to elevate Justice K.M. Joseph to the Supreme Court, terming the action as “not sustainable.”

The judge had also said the credibility of the highest judiciary was “occasionally” in danger.

Justice Chelameswar could not be reached for his comments.
