The court has dismissed the applications of Delhi’s former minister Satyendra Jain, in which he had requested the transfer of pending hearings on income tax and corruption cases to a different judge, specifically Justice Vikas Dhull.
Chief District and Sessions Judge Anju Bajaj Chandna of the Rouse Avenue Court stated that there is no merit in Jain’s apprehension of bias. She mentioned that making allegations of bias or preconceived notions is easy but proving them is difficult.
She further emphasized that strict comments made by a judge cannot be a basis for concluding that the proceedings are not being conducted impartially. It is expected of a judge to carry out proceedings without fear or favor.
