Delhi HC Judge Muralidhar’s Transfer Sparks Row, Govt Says Due Process Followed

---

Hours after the late-night transfer of Delhi High Court Judge S Muralidhar, who had pulled up the Delhi Police for inaction during the riots in north-east Delhi, a political slugfest erupted between Union Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad and Congress leaders Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi.

While Priyanka Gandhi accused the government of trying to "muzzle justice" and shake people’s belief in the judicial system, Prasad accused the Congress of showing “scant regard” for the judiciary.
