New Delhi: Four days after four senior-most judges of the Supreme Court aired their differences with Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra publicly, the latter met the dissenting judges on Tuesday.

According to sources, the meeting lasted for 15 minutes and the CJI offered to listen to their grievances. All issues concerning the institution were discussed. The talks will continue on Wednesday, sources added.​

This is the first time since the row broke out that the CJI has reached out to the dissenting judges.

Earlier in the day, Attorney General KK Venugopal had said that the situation is not resolved yet. Yes, I think it has not been settled. Let’s hope things will be fully settled within 2-3 days, he said.
