ANSWER: S K Sharma
The Supreme Court on 11th Feb’15 upheld a Delhi High Court verdict which dismissed a petition seeking quashing of the appointment of former Defence Secretary Shashi Kant Sharma as Comptroller and Auditor General of India (CAG), saying it cannot meddle with the constitutional procedure. A bench headed by Chief Justice H L Dattu said there is no good ground, while dismissing the appeal against the High Court judgement which had held as valid the appointment of Sharma as the CAG.
