Bar Council of India (BCI) chairman Manan Kumar Mishra in an interview with ThePrint has elaborated on his latest campaign to fight for ‘men’s rights’.

Bar Council of India (BCI) chairman Manan Kumar Mishra has apparently written yet another open letter calling for a lot of different things at once, reported Bar & Bench:

Advocate Utsav Bains, who is practising in Delhi and has previously appeared for a rape survivor in the ultimately successful conviction of Asaram Bapu, has written a public Facebook post alleging that an anonymous person, possibly a ‘fixer’, had offered him Rs 1.5 crores to represent the sexual harassment complainant against Chief Justice of India (CJI) Ranjan Gogoi, in order to force him to resign.

Not missing a beat after the press conference-cum-special bench-cum-non-order the Chief Justice of India (CJI) Ranjan Gogoi had in a hurry constituted on Saturday to caution the media about reporting the sexual harassment allegations against him, functionaries of the bar had immediately jumped to his defense.

The Chief Justice of India (CJI) Ranjan Gogoi has instituted a special bench this morning, at 10:30am in Court Number 1, headed by himself alongside justices Arun Mishra and Sanjeev Khanna, to vociferously refute sexual harassment allegations made against him by a complainant in a letter sent to all Supreme Court judges.

The Supreme Court has elevated 38 lawyers to senior counsel status, a list that unusually also includes some bright up-and-comers and also several graduates of NLSIU Bangalore, which has become a semi-regular fixture in the senior counsel stakes.*

The Bar Council of India (BCI) has issued a press release slamming recently retired Justice J Chelameswar for speaking to the press after his retirement, explaining why he (and others) took the unprecedented step in January of calling a press conference criticising the conduct of their Chief Justice of India (CJI) Dipak Misra.

Nearly three months after overdue elections were held on the Supreme Court’s order for the Bihar bar council on 27 March, the vote counting is now complete and has confirmed the 25 winning members, including the re-election of senior counsel and ex-Bar Council of India (BCI) chairman Manan Kumar Mishra.

Well-known academic, Alternative Law Forum (ALF) founder and NLSIU Bangalore alumnus Lawrence Liang has appealed in the Delhi high court against Ambedkar University Delhi’s sexual harassment committee finding of March that he had harassed a female PhD student of another Delhi university, suspending him from administrative duties.
