Five cases related to the solar scam will now be transferred from the court of the Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate (Economic Offences) to the District Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate Court here.
The cases have been transferred by the District Chief Judicial Magistrate after Economic Offences ACJM N.V. Raju sought to recuse himself from the case. Mr. Raju had on Thursday written to the Chief Judicial Magistrate a second time asking him to transfer the cases to a different court citing personal reasons.
He had first written to the CJM on July 31 this year. The request was made following complaints accusing the ACJM (Economic Offences) of ‘procedural lapses’ during the custody hearing of solar scam accused Saritha S. Nair.
