Vacation bench of SC to hear urgent matters during Holi break, says CJI

In an unprecedented move, Chief Justice of India (CJI) Sharad Arvind Bobde on Thursday said that a vacation bench of the Supreme Court will hear urgent matters during the week-long Holi break.
So far, a vacation bench only sits during the summer vacation break.
The CJI made the announcement after a lawyer sought an urgent hearing in a case. “It won’t be on the day of Holi but during the week,” CJI Bobde added.
