Debjit Mukherjee: Anubrata Mondal’s bench change request rejected. Before Chief District and Sessions Judge Anju Bajaj Chandna of Rouse Avenue Court, the lawyers of Birbhum Trinamool Congress president claimed that Judge Raghubir Singh was biased.

The court reserved the verdict after hearing on the first day of August. On this day, the court did not give detailed observations but said that his application was rejected.
