A division bench of Bombay High Court on Thursday recused itself from hearing a public interest litigation seeking a probe into alleged financial embezzlement by former BJP chief Nitin Gadkari.
After the case was taken up on Thursday, the HC Bench said the matter would not be heard before them. The PIL will now be allotted to another bench of the High Court.
Judges may decide to recuse themselves for a variety of reasons. The bench has, however, not given any reason for recusing itself.
