Delhi Violence Case: Delhi High Court Judge S Muralidhar Gets Transfer Order
Delhi High Court Judge Justice S Muralidhar, who was hearing the Delhi violence case, has been transferred to the Punjab and Haryana High Court, days after the Supreme Court made the recommendation.
The notification for the transfer came on a day when a Delhi High Court bench headed by him expressed "anguish" over Delhi Police's failure to register first investigation reports against alleged hate speeches by three BJP leaders.
A notification issued by the Ministry of Law and Justice states that President Ram Nath Kovind took the decision after consulting the Chief Justice of India.
The notification, however, does not mention when he has to take the charge of his office.
