Panaji: The Goa legislative assembly on Tuesday congratulated former district and sessions judge Anuja Prabhudessai for her elevation as Goa`s first woman high court judge.

Prabhudessai was in the news some time back for rejecting former Tehelka editor-in-chief Tarun Tejpal`s anticipatory bail plea after a prolonged hearing Nov 30.
Speaking during the congratulatory motion, Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar said that Prabhudessai was known as a "strong and law-minded" judge and also for her impartiality.

"She deserves promotion and I congratulate her for being the first lady (high court) judge from Goa...She has the quality of being impartial," Parrikar said.
