The CBI has arrested five persons for alleged defamatory posts against Andhra Pradesh High Court judges, days after the Chief Justice of India said that the agencies "do not respond" when lower court judges complain about threats. The complaint by the Andhra court to probe the conspiracy behind the defamatory posts is from two years ago.

Sources told NDTV that the agency registered the case following an  order from the Andhra High Court and three persons were arrested then. Now, two more have been arrested, one who returned from Kuwait recently, the source added. The comments by Chief Justice NV Ramana were made when the top court took up the recent murder of a Jharkhand District Judge. "The CBI has done nothing. We have expected some change in the CBI's attitude but there is no change. Sorry to say, this is the situation," said the top judge, asking the centre to respond within a week on a pending petition for protecting judges.
