Bangalore, Dec 17 (IANS) Karnataka High Court Chief Justice P.D. Dinakaran has become the first chief justice of a high court in the country to stay away from judicial proceedings in the face of allegations of land grab.
Karnataka High Court registrar general R.B. Budhihal late Wednesday issued a notification stating that Dinakaran will not take up judicial matters until further orders. The notification did not assign any reason.
Dinakaran will, however, continue to carry out administrative duties as the chief justice.
Welcoming the move, the Bangalore Advocates Association said Dinakaran should be restrained from administrative work as well.
