Delhi HC Judge Justice S Muralidhar, Transferred Hours After He Criticised Delhi Police Over Delhi Violence

Delhi High Court judge Justice S Muralidhar, who yesterday during Delhi violence petition hearing lashed out on Delhi police, Centre and the Union Terriotity’s government for their ineffective response to the situation, has been transferred from Delhi High Court to Punjab and Haryana High Court.

Justice S Muralidhar, reportedly, had questioned the Delhi police why they failed to lodge FIRs against leaders for spreading hate speech. The obvious reference was to Kapil Mishra’s statement wherein he had asked the Delhi Police to clear Shaheen Bagh as the earliest. He further ater added that if police fail, he would by himself make sure the road is cleared. However, Delhi Police in the court claimed that it hasn’t seen any such video.
