Supreme Court summons center’s plan on fast track courts for MPs, MLAs
Toughening its stance on the corruption by political leaders, the Supreme Court on Wednesday summoned an action plan to institute fast track courts to speed up such trials.
The apex court demanded that central government needs to come up with a plan to institute fast track courts to dispose off cases ongoing against Members of Parliament and Members of Legislative Assemblies.
The top court also asked the government to furnish the cases registered against MPs and MLAs over past three years.
The top court gave the central government till six weeks to institute such fast track courts to ensure that such pending cases may get sorted within next one year.>
