New Delhi : A three judge bench examining whether Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) was a minority institution or not will also hold hearing on a plea challenging the appointment of Lt.Gen. Zameeruddin Shah (retd.) as its Vice Chancellor.
The bench of Chief Justice T.S. Thakur, Justice D.Y.Chandrachud and Justice L. Nageswara Rao sent the matter to the bench headed by Justice Jagdish Singh Khehar as Shah argued that the challenge to his appointment as VC could not be divorced from the question of the varsity's minority status.
