The next date of hearing has been set for November 27.

The Congress had, yesterday, moved the High Court against the Rajasthan Government ordinance which seeks to protect the serving and former judges, magistrates and bureaucrats in the state from being investigated for on-duty action without a prior sanction.

Earlier on Monday, the Rajasthan Government tabled the Bill in the state Assembly.

The Rajasthan Government, in the current legislative session, proposed an ordinance which also sought to bar the media from reporting on accusations against judges and bureaucrats till the sanction to proceed with the probe is obtained.

The ordinance is an amendment to the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973.
