    An official speaking on the condition of anonymity said Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi, in his administrative capacity as head of the judiciary, has taken note of allegations of listing of cases out of turn before various benches of the apex court.

    The CJI has decided to appoint senior superintendents of police and superintendents of police from the CBI and Delhi Police. These police officers will be appointed on deputation to keep a check on suspect listing of cases and other activities of employees and lawyers.

    Recently, two members of the court staff were dismissed by the Chief Justice on the allegation of changing an order in a case related to an industrialist.

    The apex court has also appointed a one-man inquiry panel after a lawyer made the allegation that middlemen were active in getting cases listed. The panel is headed by former Supreme Court judge Justice A K Patnaik.
