New Delhi: After a controversy erupted, Supreme Court judge A.K. Sikri, who last week sided with the government in the three-member committee to remove CBI Director Alok Verma, on Sunday withdrew his "consent" to be nominated to the post of President/Member of the London-based Commonwealth Secretariat Arbitral Tribunal (CSAT).
Sources close to the jugde said that Sikri communicated to the government on Sunday expressing his withdrawal of consent after news broke out over his nomination to the post.
They said that the judge was asked by the government in December about his inclination to hold the post. He had then agreed.
