 In response to an RTI application by activist Subhash Chandra Agrawal, the PMO replied that a complaint by Delhi-based journalist Dr M Furqan was received on July 20.

Furqan also sent his complaint demanding a probe into some of the judgements delivered by the bench headed by Justice Kabir to President Pranab Mukherjee, Vice-President Hamid Ansari, Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar, leader of the opposition in the Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj and Aam Aadmi Party leaders Arvind Kejriwal and Prashant Bhushan.

 The five-page complaint refers to the majority judgement of the SC, delivered by a bench headed by Justice Kabir on July 18, a day before he retired, which scrapped the National Eligibility cum-Entrance Test for admission to MBBS, BDS and post-graduate courses in medical and dental colleges.
