SC verdict tomorrow on petitions against CVC Thomas' appointment
The Supreme Court will pronounce its verdict on Thursday on petitions challenging the appointment of former bureaucrat P J Thomas, who is facing a corruption case in Kerala, as Central Vigilance Commissioner.
A bench of Chief Justice S H Kapadia and Justices K S Radhakrishnan and Swatanter Kumar had reserved its judgement on February 10.
The PIL filed by an NGO, Center for Public Interest Litigation (CPIL) and retired bureacrats and police officials, including former Chief Election Commissioner J M Lyngdoh, had challenged Thomas' appointment to the post in view of a pending criminal case against him in a Kerala court. Thomas was appointed CVC on September 7 last year.
