January 13 (ANI): The Bar Council of India (BCI) on Saturday formed a seven-member delegation which will attempt to mend ties between four senior Supreme Court judges and Chief Justice of India (CJI) Dipak Misra.

"All four senior most judges have resolved their differences and are attending the court", BCI Chairman Manan Kumar Misra told a news conference.

The main topic of discussion during the press conference was about the issue of judicial appointments. The Judges also said that they won't recommend impeachment of the CJI by Parliament and that it was for the people to decide. How this will carry out in the future is a show to watch out for all the concerned citizens of the nation, who rely on the decisions of the supreme court.

Judge Loya's son, Anuj on Sunday in a press conference said that his family has no suspicions now regarding the death, and that they don't want to be victims of any political issue.

"You have killed the institution, its reputation and maligned every single judge", the junior judge said. The press conference was the first of its kind, and it was done at the residence of Justice Chelameswar, reports The Indian Express.
