Shankar Bidari’s case goes to HC Chief Justice
Bangalore: The Karnataka High Court today referred to the Chief Justice, the writ petition filed by former DGP Shankar Mahadev Bidari, seeking reinstatement as Director General of Police.
The division bench, comprising Justices N Kumar and H S Kempanna referred the matter to the Chief Justice, considering Bidari`s application, asking the bench not to hear the matter and place it before the Chief Justice.
Earlier, the bench observed it was ready to hear the matter and had been constituted for the very purpose but was referring it to the CJ in view of the application filed.
Bidari had filed the petition in the wake of the recent Supreme Court verdict directing the Karnataka High Court to review the case.
On April 24 the Apex Court had stayed the High Court order quashing Bidari`s appointment as Director General of Police.
Bidari is due to retire from service on May 31.
