The Bombay High Court on Friday referred a petition challenging the appointment of Mumbai University's Vice-Chancellor Rajan Welukar to a separate division bench in order to obtain a majority view on the issue.
In August last year, a bench of Chief Justice Mohit Shah and Justice Girish Godbole had given a split verdict on the case, which was subsequently referred to a third judge.
The third judge, Justice Vazifdar, did not completely agree with either of the judges, but held that there was inadequate material to decide whether the appointment was valid or not. A set of petitions have challenged Welukar's appointment on the ground that he did not possess the requisite number of research publications.
In August last year, Chief Justice Shah had declined to interfere with the appointment, while Justice Godbole had directed the university's search committee to reconsider the appointment.
