Ravi Shankar Prasad: Muralidhar's transfer a “well-settled process”

Justice Muralidhar who criticized the Delhi police over the violence in Delhi has been transferred to the Punjab and Haryana High Court. 

Union Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad on Thursday said a “well-settled process” was followed in the transfer of Delhi High Court judge Justice S Muralidhar to the Punjab and Haryana High Court, and pointed out that consent of the judge is taken in the decision.


The move to transfer S Muralidhar has created a furore, with the Delhi High Court Bar Association up in arms against the said decision of the Supreme Court collegium.

The Bar Association has condemned the move of transferring “one of the finest judges to have adorned the Bench” as being “detrimental to our noble institution, but also tend[ing] to erode and dislodge the faith of the common litigant in the justice dispensation system.”

The Indian National Congress party also reacted on Muralidhar's transfer.

Priyanka Gandhi Vadra said, "The midnight transfer of Justice Muralidhar isn’t shocking given the current dispensation, but it is certainly sad & shameful."
