The Supreme Court on Thursday issued a contempt notice to activist and lawyer Prashant Bhushan for his tweets allegedly criticising the court on the appointment of M Nageswara Rao as interim CBI director.

The notice was issued after petitions filed by Attorney General K K Venugopal and the Centre against Bhushan.

A bench of Justices Arun Mishra and Naveen Sinha said it would deal with the larger question of whether it is open for lawyers or any other person to criticise the court in a sub judice matter which would lead to influencing public opinion.

The bench added that criticising the court may also lead to interference in the course of justice.

"This issue required to be heard in length, notice issued," the bench said.

The bench listed the matter for further hearing on March 7.
