The bench said it will meet the CBI and IB directors and the Delhi Police commissioner in "secret".

"It is not an enquiry. We are meeting these officers in secret. We don't want any evidence to be disclosed," the bench also comprises justices RF Nariman and Deepak Gupta said.

The matter relates to the independence of the judiciary in the country, the bench said.

Mishra has termed the entire episode as "very disturbing".

It directed that the officers would meet the judges in chamber at 12.30 pm and the bench will reassemble to hear the matter again at 3 pm.

The court perused the report of the lawyer, which was filed in a sealed cover, about allegations that there are some who manage verdicts.
