The Supreme Court has ordered the Chief Justice of the Calcutta High Court to assign the West Bengal school jobs “scam” case to a different judge after examining a report on Justice Abhijit Gangopadhyay’s interview with a news channel about the case.

The bench, comprising Chief Justice DY Chandrachud and Justice PS Narasimha, took note of the report of the Registrar General of the Calcutta High Court during a hearing on a plea by TMC leader Abhishek Banerjee.

The court ordered the pending proceedings to be reassigned to a different judge of the Calcutta High Court, who would be free to consider all applications in this regard.
