NEW DELHI: Justice S Sreesanth, who filed a case against BJP leaders in a hate speech speech, said on Tuesday that the party would not be allowed to do so. The order to evict Muralidhar was issued.
The transfer was made to the Punjab Haryana High Court. The Collegium had earlier recommended the transfer of Muralitharan. The order was issued tonight.
The transfer order was issued on the same day the Delhi riot case was considered. Earlier, Justice Muraleedhar was moved to the bench headed by the Chief Justice of India, following a petition filed by him against the BJP leaders.
The apex court said it would examine the hate speech of Kapil Mishra, Anurag Thakur, Parvesh Verma and Abhay Verma. The court also said that if there are any more hate speech, they should also be examined.
The HC directed the HC to consider a plea seeking a judicial inquiry into the Delhi riots. The judge had asked the Solicitor General and a top Delhi police officer whether he had not heard hate speech during the course of the case.
However, the judge, who replied that he had not seen the footage, showed him hate speeches. Subsequently, the Solicitor General was asked to clarify the position.
