New Delhi: Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi on Thursday said the judiciary is witnessing an unprecedented rise in instances of "indecorous" acts, and lamented that graceful discourses and deliberations were increasingly being replaced by "loud and motivated" conduct in the courts.

It was important that these are quickly identified, isolated and put in "quarantine" by stake holders to ensure the decorum and dignity of the judiciary was not lost, he said.

The CJI was speaking during the Independence Day celebrations in the Supreme Court's lawn where he unfurled the national flag in the presence of other dignitaries, including Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad, Attorney General K K Venugopal and senior advocates.

Gogoi said instances of inappropriate behaviour have raised their ugly head in all courts including the Supreme Court

"Indian judiciary has since some time past witnessed an unprecedented rise of instance of indecorous acts... Such instances of inappropriate behaviour have raised their ugly head in all courts including the Supreme Court. Graceful and pleasant discourses and deliberations are increasingly being replaced by loud and motivated conduct," he said.

He said, " It was important that stake holders quickly identify and isolate and put them in quarantine. They must ensure that the decorum and the dignity of this institution is not lost."

The CJI said that reinventing the decades old infrastructure of the apex court would not be a mean task and asked all stake holders to rise to the constitutional needs and "overcome parochial overtones and myopic considerations".
