CJ Sinha will travel to Australia soon

MNA National Desk: Chief Justice Surendra Kumar Sinha has received an Australian visa amid speculations over his leave from the Supreme Court.

A source at the Supreme Court confirmed to media on Saturday night that Surendra Kumar and his wife Sushma Sinha received visas for three years.

On 2 October, the chief justice went on one-month leave on health grounds.

The chief justice was vehemently criticized by ministers and ruling party leaders for his observations made in the verdict that had annulled the 16th amendment to the constitution.

He assumed office on 17 January, 2015 as the country’s 21st chief justice. He is scheduled to go on retirement on 31 January next year.
