The Supreme Court, on Thursday, sought a report from its registry as to how the Delhi-Noida Direct (DND) toll flyway matter, which involves “hundreds of crores of rupees”, gets listed for hearing contrary to the court’s order to be listed in last week.

“We see this case involving hundred of crores of rupees... has been listed today contrary to the orders of the court. Registry should tell us. It seems there is more to it. We know what registry is doing,” said a bench of Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justices Deepak Gupta and Sanjiv Khanna.

The bench also refused to hear any arguments in the case.

The top court’s remark came at a time when another bench, which was hearing a lawyer’s claim of “larger conspiracy” to frame Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi in sexual harassment allegations, said that “fixers are at play” in the apex court who try to fix benches in connivance with registry officials.

During the last hearing April 12, SC had stayed arbitral proceedings between Noida authority and NTBCL over issues related to toll collection on DND Flyway.
