HC judge will appear in SC to argue against collegium’s transfer move | The Indian Express

By Utkarsh Anand

IN A FIRST, a sitting High Court judge will show up next month in Supreme Court to argue against the collegium’s mandate to transfer him.

The judge has written to the apex court about his decision to appear in person while the parent high court has sought orders to ask him to vacate his official bungalow in Chennai so that one of the newly-appointed judges could be allotted the accommodation.

Not just this, the high court also wants the judge to return 12 files that are allegedly still in his possession.

CJI Khehar is intentionally deviating from the core issue of corruption charges against high court and supreme court judges. CJI himself is accused of corruption by former arunachal pradesh chief minister. CJI is hell bent to protect corrupt judges. Mr.Khehar, Mr.Karnan is capable of protecting his health and his family members are there to look after his health if needed. you don't worry but CJI CONCENTRATE ON YOUR OFFICIAL DUTIES , ENQUIRE , PROSECUTE CORRUPT JUDGES IN HIGH COURTS AND SUPREME COURT . READ web news papers sos e voice for justice and sos e clarion of dalit. By ordering forcible medical examination of karnan , you are violating his human rights. On an equal footing why not medical examination , polygraph , lie detector tests of CJI Khehar and his coterie ?
