SC collegium 'proposed' Dinakaran's transfer: CJI

“We don’t divulge these things to the press unless a final decision is taken by the President. Transfer is effected by the President. So, until that, it is only a proposal,” Balakrishnan told reporters here.

Justice Balakrishnan was asked about the SC collegium’s reported recommendation on shifting Justice Dinakaran to the northeastern state.

“Let them protest,” he said when asked about the Sikkim Bar Association opposing the transfer of Justice Dinakaran and appealing to the Supreme Court to reconsider the move.
The Association had on Friday decided to boycott the swearing-in ceremony of Justice Dinakaran as well as the court he will preside over.

Justice Dinakaran has not been performing judicial functions after Rajya Sabha Chairman Hamid Ansari admitted a motion in December last seeking his impeachment on charges of corruption, land-grab and abuse of judicial office. He has denied the allegations.
