Advocate Saurabh Kirpal on Judge delay in promotion: The country’s senior advocate Saurabh Kripal has said that his ‘sexuality’ is the real reason for the central government not acting on its recommendation for elevation as a judge. If Saurabh Kirpal becomes a judge of the Delhi High Court, he will be the first gay judge in India. Addressing the Sahitya Aaj Tak 2022 event in Delhi, Advocate Kripal said, “I don’t think there is any other way to say it. Out of 12 recommendations, 11 were appointed and I am not among them, what could be the reason. The alleged reasons are so superficial that the only real reason is my sexuality. There is no other possible reason for this.”
