In a press meet, the four 'rebel judges' - Justices J Chelameswar, Ranjan Gogoi, Madan Lokur and Kurien Joseph had said that 'things were not in order' at the apex court.

The top judges had launched a sharp attack on Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra for 'ignoring the concerns voiced by them'. 

"Administration of the Supreme Court is not in order. Many things less than desirable have happened in the last few months. We owe a responsibility to the institution and the nation," Justice Chelameswar had said during the press conference.
