The Madras HC on Friday initiated contempt proceedings against Desingu, president of the Debt Recovery Tribunal (DRT) in Chennai, on the basis of a letter from the members of the legal fraternity dated July 11 2012. The first bench of Acting Chief Justice R K Agrawal and Justice M Sathyanarayanan, which initiated the proceedings, posted the matter for further hearing on September 3 and dispensed with the presence of Desingu in the court on that day. The July 7 letter allegedly explained the “questionable tactics of a  member of the Bar in approaching DRT presiding officer for certain favour”.
