Another SC judge recuses from Thomas Chandy case

Justice Kurian Joseph recused from hearing the appeal filed by former Transport Minister of Kerala, Thomas Chandy, in a case relating to illegal encroachments.

Earlier this week on January 15, Justice AM Sapre recused himself from hearing the matter, a month after Justice AM Khanwilkar, who was a part of the bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra, recused himself in the same case on December 15.

Chandy had moved the Supreme Court challenging the November 14, 2017 order of the Kerala High Court dismissing his petition against the report of Alappuzha district collector on alleged encroachments by a company in which he had stake.
