“It is stated that on April 26, 2023 at about 07.00 p.m., His
Lordship, Hon’ble Justice Abhijit Gangopadhyay has been pleased
to forward a note prepared by His Lordship in respect of annexure-
P7, transcript version of the interview “Ghanta-Khanek Songe

Court, Calcutta (Original Side) pursuant to His Lordship’s direction,
along with a CD containing the interview which was proadcasted
on ABP Ananda, are annexed herewith as Annexure-A, B and C

2 We have considered the note prepared by Justice Abhijit Gangopadhyay in respect of Annexure-P7 and have also perused the transcript of the interview. The transcript has been authenticated on 26 April 2023 by the Interpreting Officer (Court) on the Original side of the High Court at Calcutta.
3 Having considered the transcript, we direct that the Acting Chief Justice of the High Court at Calcutta shall reassign the pending proceedings in the case to some other Judge of the Calcutta High Court. The Judge to whom the proceedings are reassigned by the Acting Chief Justice would be at liberty to take up all applications which may be moved in that regard.
4 The Special Leave Petitions are accordingly disposed of.
5 A copy of this order shall be communicated by the Secretary General of this Court to the Registrar General of the High Court at Calcutta so that it can be placed before the Chief Justice on the administrative side.
