SC judge recuses himself in Dadri case

New Delhi: The Supreme Court hearing on the issue of land acquisition for Reliance-Anil Dhirubhai Ambani Group-owned Reliance Power Ltd’s 7,480MW Dadri power plant in Ghaziabad district could not commence as one of the judges recused himself from hearing the case.

Justice B.S. Chauhan recused himself from hearing the case as he had earlier heard the matter when he was a judge at the Allahabad high court. The apex court adjourned the hearing for 18 January with a direction to place the matter before a different bench.
