Terming as "disturbing" the allegations levelled in CBI's FIR that also made former Orissa High Court judge Ishrat Masroor Quddusi as one of the accused, the top court said the plea would come up for hearing before the constitution bench on November 13.
Post FIR raids more than Rs 2 crore was recovered and CBI made arrests including that of Justice Qudussi. The first judicial pay commission, headed by Justice Jagannatha Shetty, was set up in March 1996 and it submitted its report in November 1999.
The activist advocate was also rebuked by Justice Arun Mishra, who observed that FIR can not be lodged against sitting judicial officer of lower courts, judges of the higher judiciary, the Vice President of India or the President of India because they have immunity.
What appears to have happened is that the Chief Justice constituted a seven-judge bench to hear the case, but then Justice Sikri and Justice Bhushan, who heard the matter in the morning, apparently recused themselves from this.The bench sat to look into the propriety of Justice Chelameshwar's order setting up a Constitution Bench without consulting Chief Justice Misra, among other things.

Referring to another prayer by petitioner-in-person R.P. Luthra, the bench on Wednesday said: "Having considered the entire facts and circumstances of the case and further taking note of the relief clause, we have no iota of doubt that the petitioner had sought primarily for mitigation of an individual grievance which the two-Judge bench had correctly declined to entertain".
According to Bar and Bench website, a 5-judge Bench of CJI Misra and Justices RK Agrawal, Arun Mishra, Amitava Roy and AM Khanwilkar was hearing the petition filed by Campaign for Judicial Accountability and Judicial Reforms (CJAR). "I feel sorry. You are liable for contempt now", the CJI said. However, the petition was later moved to a bench headed by Justice AK Sikri.
During the charged-up hearing, Suri also questioned the manner in which the petition was mentioned yesterday before a bench headed by Justice Chelameswar at 10.30 am and was taken up for hearing by the bench at 12.45 pm itself.
The CJI also recalled an order passed by another bench seeking to hear the views of the government on setting up a national court of appeals, which would deal with appeals against high court decisions and leave the topcourt free to examine constitutional issues. A two-judge bench can not refer a matter like this to a constitution bench.
Perturbed by yesterday's order, the CJI, without taking names of the concerned judges, said there were hundreds of matters listed in the court daily and if the orders were passed like this, then the court can not function.

The Supreme Court today wondered how could two of its judges usurp the power of the Chief Justice of India to set up a bench, while some lawyers alleged that an NGO and an advocate were indulging in "forum shopping".
The proceedings led to heated arguments between the bench and lawyers, some of whom wanted contempt proceedings initiated against the petitioners for sullying the image of the Supreme Court.
Bhushan told CJI Misra, "FIR is lodged directly against you".
It directed the CBI to produce these documents in sealed cover before Constitution Bench on the coming Monday.
