The SC Collegium said that they have scrutinized and evaluated the material placed on record, including the inputs furnished by the Intelligence Bureau.
"For the purpose of assessing the merit and suitability of the candidates for elevation to the High Court, we have scrutinized and evaluated the material placed on record, including the inputs furnished by the Intelligence Bureau. We have also perused the observations made
by the Department of Justice in the file," the collegium noted.
In a seperate resolution, the SC collegium recommended advocate Kardak Ete, for appointment as a Judge in the Gauhati High Court.
The Collegium of the Gauhati High Court comprising of the then Chief Justice and two seniormost Judges unanimously made the recommendation on December 1, 2022. The Chief Ministers and Governors of the States of Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Mizoram and Nagaland have concurred with the recommendation.
"Kardak Ete has been designated as a Senior Advocate. The Collegium has considered the opinion of the consultee judges with regard to his suitability. The report of the Intelligence Bureau indicates that he enjoys a good personal and professional image and nothing adverse has come to notice with regard to integrity. The candidate belongs to a Scheduled Tribe. Besides his own competence and standing at the Bar, the appointment of Shri Kardak Ete will bring
greater diversity and inclusion to the High Court," the resolution said.
