Two judges of the Madras High Court Bench here on Friday recused from hearing a writ appeal filed by M. Dhavamani Christober against an order passed by a single judge on October 15 quashing his appointment as principal of The American College here.

A Division Bench comprising Justice K. N. Basha and Justice T. Raja directed the High Court Registry to post the matter before some other Division Bench after stating that one of them had received an anonymous telegram with regard to the case.

Later in the day, the case was listed for hearing before a Division Bench comprising Justice M. Jaichandren and Justice S. Nagamuthu who adjourned it to Wednesday after refusing to pass interim orders staying the operation of the single judge’s order.
