NEW DELHI, June 24 - The Supreme Court collegium�s recommendation for the appointment of two lawyers as judges of the Allahabad High Court has been returned for the second time by the government citing complaints against them.

The two lawyers are Mohammad Mansoor and Basharat Ali Khan. Mansoor is the son of former Supreme Court judge late Saghir Ahmed. Justice Ahmed had headed a working group formed by then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Centre-State relations with special reference to Jammu and Kashmir.

The NDA government had on an earlier occasion returned the file recommending the two names, citing complaints against the candidates. But the collegium reiterated its recommendation, terming the complaints as frivolous.

Last month, the recommendation was returned by the government to the collegium for reconsideration, after keeping the matter pending for over two-and-a-half years.

After Justice J Chelameswar retired on Friday, the five-member collegium � a body of top five Supreme Court judges � will have to be reconstituted. The collegium, with a new member, will now have to take a call on the two names. � PTI
