The Supreme Court of India on Tuesday, June 18th 2015, barred the entry of Law interns in courtrooms after receiving an anonymous e-mail that threatened the apex court of bomb attacks.
Following this mail, Delhi Police decided to beef up the security at the Supreme Court as this is not the first threat that the court has received this month.
According to reports a death threat was made against Supreme Court judge Justice Dipak Misra earlier this month.
Justice Dipak Misra had received an anonymous threat mail on 7th August 2015, a week after he had rejected Mumbai blasts convict Yakub Memon’s mercy plea.
Besides, beefing up the security at the Apex Court, a 2 tire Police security has also been set up at Justice Misra’s home and police has also decided not to issue any litigants passes for consultation with SC Judges.
While, every step has been taken to secure the Indian Supreme Court, teams from the special cell and the intelligence Bureau have also been set up to investigate the matter.
