AGARTALA, Feb 27 (TIWN): Justice S Muralidhar, who heard the petitions on Delhi violence on Wednesday and slammed Delhi Police over continuous violence over 3 days, has been transferred to the Punjab and Haryana High Court. President Kovind has ordered the transfer following the recommendation by Supreme Court.

A notification issued by the Ministry of Law and Justice announced that the President has taken the decision after consulting the Chief Justice of India.

(Today at 2 PM the hearing was scheduled)

Delhi HC Judge S Muralidhar has now been transferred to the Punjab and Haryana High Court. The Supreme Court had recommended the transfer last week, following which Delhi High Court launched a protest against the move.

The Supreme Court collegium had recommended the transfer of 3 judges on February 12. The notifications for these transfers were issued late on Wednesday night.

Justice Muralidhar was hearing the Delhi violence case on Wednesday. The late evening notification of his transfer came on the same day when a bench headed by him expressed "anguish" over the Delhi Police's failure to register FIRs against alleged hate speeches by three BJP leaders, including Kapil Mishra.

The law ministry notification, however, does not mention when he has to take charge of his office.
