New Delhi : Chief justice of India Ranjan Gogoi has asked the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to take action against Justice Tahilramani on her financial irregularities in purchase of her two flats in Chennai after a report by Intelligence Bureau (IB) ‘red flagging’ her. It is widely covered by a number of prominent national dailies and their websites on Monday.
The Madras high court chief Justice Tahilramani was given orders to be transferred to the Meghalaya high court on August 28 to which she had sent a reconsideration of the decision, citing that the court in Meghalaya is much smaller than the one in Chennai.
But her appeal was not reconsidered for which she filed her resignation. Since her resignation, a five-page IB report has sought to highlight her financial irregularities in the purchase of two flats in Chennai, apart from her previous decision to dissolve a high court bench investigating idol theft cases involving influential people and also in her links with a Tamil Nadu minister.
However, the report does not make it clear as to when the Chief Justice ordered the CBI investigation and under what circumstances he issued the direction.
