Notes

Justice Dipak Misra became the 45th Chief Justice of India, and the first in 67 years to have `Z' category security cover. On July 30, 2015, in a pre dawn hearing, a Justice Mis ra-led bench had rejected 1993 Mumbai blasts condemned prisoner Yakub Memon's last-gasp plea for commutation of his death penalty . Shortly thereafter, a threat letter necessitated `Z' category security for him. Justice Misra becomes the third person from Odisha to become CJI. (Dhananjay Mahapatra |Dipak Misra is CJI, will serve till Oct 2018 |Aug 29 2017 : The Times of India (Delhi))
