Imphal: Justice M. V. Murlidharan, acting chief justice of Manipur High Court, was transferred on Wednesday to Calcutta High Court. This move follows the appointment of Siddharth Mridul as the chief justice of Manipur High Court.
On Wednesday, Justice Murlidharan and 15 other high court judges were transferred. The Supreme Court Collegium recommended his transfer to Calcutta High Court for “better administration of justice.”
It is to be noted that Justice Murlidharan’s previous order called for the inclusion of the Meitei community in the Scheduled Tribes (ST) list. Murlidharan had also reportedly issued an order for disqualification of MP Lorho S. Pfoze.
