Major transfer of HC judges by SC

Major transfer of HC judges by SC

In a major judicial shake up, the Gujarat High Court judge who refused to pause Congress MP Rahul Gandhi's conviction in the criminal defamation case over his 'Modi surname' remark is among 23 judges recommended for transfer by the Supreme Court Collegium. Justice Hemant M Prachchhak, in a 123-page verdict in July, had rejected Rahul Gandhi's request, saying no case was made out to stay the conviction.

The Collegium has recommended the transfers "for better administration of justice", according to a document put up on the Supreme Court website last night.

In the past, Justice Prachchhak had been a part of the lawyers' team defending former BJP minister Maya Kodnani, an accused in the 2002 Gujarat riots case
