New Delhi: Justice A.M. Khanwilkar of the Supreme Court on Tuesday recused himself from hearing the politically sensitive Rs64 crore Bofors payoff case.
Justice Khanwilkar, who was the part of a bench headed by chief justice Dipak Misra, did not give any reason for opting himself out of hearing the matter. The bench, which also comprised justice D.Y. Chandrachud, said a new bench would be constituted for hearing the matter on 28 March.
