SC Collegium Refuses To Reconsider Proposal To Transfer Justice Muralidaran From Madras HC To Manipur HC

The Supreme Court collegium has refused to accede to the request of Justice M V Muralidaran to reconsider the recommendation to transfer him from Madras High Court to Manipur High Court.

On January 15, the Collegium had proposed his transfer to Manipur HC in the interest of "better administration of justice".

Upon his views being sought on the proposal, Justice Muralidaran expressed his unwillingness to go to Manipur HC and requested for reconsideration of the recommendation.

But even on reconsideration, the Collegium comprising CJI Gogoi and Justices Sikri, Bobde, Ramana and Arun Mishra reiterated the original proposal.
