The central government on Monday appointed Rajkot-based lawyer Abhay Bhardwaj, who represented the accused in the 2002 Gulberg Society Massacre case, as part-time member of the 21st Law Commission of India.

The order issued by additional secretary Ramayan Yadav, department of legal affairs, Ministry of Law and Justice, New Delhi, stated Bhardwaj’s appointment will be with effect from the date he assumes charge of the post for the period up to August 31, 2018.

Earlier, former Gujarat HC judge Ravi R Tripathi was appointed as member of the panel. Bhardwaj, who has an RSS background, said that he will take the charge soon. “The 21st Law Commission of India is working on several aspects of law which needs to be repealed and bringing new laws. This is for the first time that a lawyer from a small place like Rajkot has been appointed in the commission where normally senior lawyers practicing in higher courts used to be appointed for consultation,” he said.
