SC Collegium Recommends Transfer Of Manipur High Court Acting CJ To Calcutta High Court
The Collegium declined his request for a transfer back to his parent High Court, that is the Madras High Court
The Collegium of the Supreme Court has recommended the transfer of Manipur High Court Acting Chief Justice, Justice MV Muralidharan to Calcutta High Court.
The Collegium declined his request for a transfer back to his parent High Court, that is the Madras High Court.
It stated that no merit was round in the request made by him and therefore recommendation has been made to transfer him to the Calcutta High Court.
He had passed an order that had asked the Manipur Government to consider the inclusion of the Meitei community in the list of the Scheduled Tribe.
The verdict is reported to have been a catalyst to the clashes between tribal and non-tribal groups that had engulfed the State of Manipur in the following months.
The Collegium had recommended the name of Justice Siddharth Mridul as the next Manipur High Court Chief Justice. The Central Government is yet to notify the appointment.
The Attorney General of India R Venkataramani had assured the Supreme Court that the appointment shall be cleared soon in this regard.
