The Madras High Court Bench here has stayed transfer orders issued to two drivers of ambulance service, employed by the Emergency Management and Research Institute (EMRI), from Dindigul to Vellore. Notices have been ordered to the State Health Department, Dindgul Collector and the EMRI of Government Gandhi Kasturba Hospital for Women and Children, Chennai.

Petitioners, K. Palkannan and M. Divagar, moved the court seeking to quash the transfer orders issued to them by the Government Gandhi Kasturba Hospital for Women and Children, Chennai, claiming that the motive was to prevent them from taking part in trade union activities. Justice D. Hariparanthaman heard the case.
