The Karnataka High Court on Wednesday transferred 93 judicial officers. Of these 93, a new appointment was been made for the post of Registrar, Karnataka Lokayukta. Rachappa Kuberappa Talikoti, who was the Presiding Officer, Fast Track Court at Bhadravati, will take charge as Registrar, Lokayukta, on Friday.
Earlier, B. Yoginath, a retired district judge who was appointed as Additional Registrar (Enquiries) of the Lokayukta, also held the post of in-charge Registrar. Despite the Finance Department’s advice against the appointment of Mr. Yoginath on contract, his services had been retained for at least six years. On October 3, 2011, Mr. Yoginath was made in-charge Registrar when Lokayukta’s post was vacant. The Hindu had reported on the matter.
