Law ministry had on October 12 issued a gazette notification on the government order about Chief Justice Surendra Kumar Sinha’s leaving for Australia on leave “on health grounds.

SK Sinha assumed office on January 17, 2015, as the country’s 21st chief justice. His retirement is scheduled for January 31, 2018.
Lawyers said that the chief justice was forced to go on leave under the government’s pressure following the recent Appellate Division verdict that had scrapped the 16th amendment to the constitution which had empowered parliament to remove Supreme Court judges for misbehaviour or incapacity.
The Supreme Court on July 3 unanimously declared the 16th Amendment to the constitution illegal, stripping the parliament of the power to impeach apex court judges. – Staff Reporter
