New Delhi: The Delhi High Court Bar Association (DHCBA) has decided to issue show cause notice to noted lawyer Prashant Bhushan for making "scandalous" remarks
against a sitting judge Justice Suresh Kait for sending a businessman to a mental asylum for recording court proceedings.

The decision was taken at a meeting of the Association Executive Committee, which was held yesterday. "Prashant Bhushan by writing the said communication and
making scandalous remarks amounts to failure on his part to safeguard the interest of this Temple of Justice; "Consequently a show cause notice be issued to him as
to why his membership of the DHCBA be not cancelled," said a letter by Mohit Mathur, Honorary Secretary of the Association.

The letter said Bhushan`s communication to CJI, President of India and the Prime Minister amounts "to interference" in the administration of justice adding that the
practice of "intimidating" the judges and through media "is deprecated and condemned."

Reacting to the Association`s decision, Bhushan said the Bar should itself have taken some steps in the case. Instead, they want to favour the judge, he said.
