SC seeks special courts for politicians facing cases

New Delhi, Nov 1: The Supreme Court on Wednesday asked the Central government to set up special courts to exclusively try politicians facing criminal cases so that the trial in such cases is expedited.

The bench chaired by Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justice Navin Sinha gave the government six weeks’ time to place before it the scheme for setting up of such fast-track courts and the finances involved in its implementation.

The top court also sought the status of the trial in 1,581 cases involving politicians since 2014, and how many fresh cases have been filed against politicians and lawmakers in three years since 2014 as the next hearing in the case is scheduled for December 13.
