The involvement of as many as 30 judges in the multi-crore provident fund scam has shaken the confidence of people in the judiciary, attorney general G E Vahanvati told the Supreme Court on Thursday while arguing for CBI’s application seeking transfer of the trial from Ghaziabad to Delhi.

“If there is a case in last two or three years which has shaken the confidence of people in judiciary, it is this case,” the AG told SC and said since six accused district judges, including three who later become judges of the Allahabad High Court, and witness judges officiated at some point of time in Ghaziabad, it needed to be shifted to Delhi to make proceedings free from any doubt. “In this case, justice should not only be done but seem to be done,” he pleaded before a Bench.
