NEW DELHI, May 6 - The Supreme Court on Monday agreed to hear a plea seeking direction to the CBI to lodge an FIR into the alleged conspiracy to �fix� Chief Justice of India (CJI) Ranjan Gogoi but said there was no urgency and the case would come up for hearing in the �due course�.

The matter was mentioned for urgent listing before a bench comprising Justices SA Bobde and SA Nazeer by advocate ML Sharma, who has claimed in his petition that there was a conspiracy to malign the CJI in a �concocted, false sexual harassment� case.

Sharma told the bench that his plea be listed for hearing before the same bench which has dealt with a matter in which a lawyer has filed an affidavit claiming larger conspiracy to frame the CJI. �We do not know. It (petition) will be listed in due course. We will see when it will be listed and before whom,� Justice Bobde told Sharma.

Sharma has named activist lawyers like Prashant Bhushan, Shanti Bhushan, Kamini Jaiswal, Vrinda Grover, Indira Jaising, Nina Gupta Bhasin and Dushyant Dave as parties in his public interest litigation (PIL). He has alleged that the actions of some of the lawyers amounted to �contempt of court� and there was a �planned conspiracy� to defame the CJI.

The apex court had on April 25 appointed former apex court judge Justice AK Patnaik to hold inquiry into the allegations of larger conspiracy to frame the CJI and fixing of benches in the top court. The court�s order was passed while hearing advocate Utsav Singh Bains� affidavit in which the lawyer has claimed larger conspiracy to �fix� the CJI and fixing of benches in the apex court.

Following the unprecedented hearing on April 20 during which Justice Gogoi had said some �bigger force� was behind the sexual harassment allegations against him as they wanted to �deactivate� the CJI�s office, Bains had filed an affidavit. � PTI
