NEW DELHI – A former Andhra Pradesh High Court judge has moved the Supreme Court against an order of the High Court directing a probe into an alleged phone conversation between him and a suspended trial court magistrate. Justice (retd) V Eswaraiah in his petition alleged that the incident was a ‘serious conspiracy’ against the judiciary. The plea sought a stay of the high court’s order for the enquiry on the ground that it was unwarranted and illegal and has been passed without a notice to Justice Eswaraiah and has caused undue harassment to him. The high court, in its order, had requested former Supreme Court judge Justice R V Raveendran to inquire into the matter.
