After reports about his selection as a member of the London-based Commonwealth Secretariat Arbitral Tribunal (CSAT), Justice Sikri is learnt to have written to the Law Ministry on Sunday evening to formally turn down the offer.

Supreme Court judge AK Sikri, whose vote helped decide CBI chief Alok Verma's removal from the top post, has turned down a post-retirement offer from the government.

Sikri was nominated for the coveted sinecure in November last year. This week, he voted alongside the prime minister to sack the CBI director.
