How is Indian judiciary? A recent Supreme Court judgement finds out an unholy nexus between a former Kolkata High Court judge and former Bengal chief minister Jyoti Basu.

The judge in question is Bhagabati Prasad Banerjee who secured a four-katha plot in upmarket Salt Lake area in 1987 in exchange of a verdict in favor of the Government.

When a litigation involving the government's irregularities in allotment of Salt Lake plots came up in his court, he initially stopped the allotment, but just after four days, he modified his order, allowing only the chief minister to use his dicretion to allot the plots.

So, when the next list of allotment came in, the judge's name was on the top of it. It's now learnt that he had practically bargained for a plot while he was hearing the case.

A perfect example of "give and take"!

If it hurts you, it is because a judge is involved in it.

Has justice any chance if the judiciary is corrupt?
