Breaking: New garb for Justice Katju as Press Council of India chairman

Justice Markandey Katju, who retired from the Supreme Court just over two weeks ago, is set to become chairman of the Press Council of India (PCI).

According to Twitter user emkay and the Hindustan Times, Katju would take up the post, which has a five-year tenure.

The Hindustan Times cited government sources but was told by Katju that he would not comment until he had received formal government notification.

Katju replaces former Supreme Court Justice Ganendra Narayan Ray, who took up the post in 2005.
