Chief Justice Waghela transferred to Bombay HC


Chief Justice of the Orissa High Court Justice D. H. Waghela has been transferred to Bombay High Court in the same capacity.

A communiqué to this effect from the Union Law Ministry reached here on Wednesday.

According to sources in the High Court Registry, Justice Waghela is likely to assume charge as the Chief Justice of Bombay High Court on or before February 16.

Reports said that the Supreme Court Collegium late last month had recommended the transfer of Justice Waghela along with appointment of six other Chief Justices of different High Courts in its first set of suggestions after scrapping of the National Judicial Appointments Commission Act by the apex court.
