The magistrate who had ordered two women, who criticised Mumbai’s shut-down on Facebook after the death of Bal Thackeray last week, to be taken into judicial custody and later released on Rs 30,000 bail, has been transferred to Jalgaon in the far North of Maharashtra.
The Bombay High Court has ordered first class judicial magistrate Ramchandra Bagade to move immediately to Jalgaon from Palghar, which is in the Thane district near Mumbai, reported NDTV.
An inquiry into the incident has so far indicted the policemen involved in the action that was taken under the IPC and the IT Act and the Maharashtra home minister RR Patil may publicly comment on this later today [NDTV]
