The Supreme Court on Monday said an MP or MLA cannot claim immunity from prosecution on charges of bribery in connection with casting a vote or making a speech in the legislature. A seven-judge bench, led by Chief Justice of India (CJI) DY Chandrachud, pronounced its "unanimous decision" on the matter. To recall, the verdict was reserved in October 2023.
