CJ of Madras HC displeased over unsavory incidents during his tenure
Chennai: Chief Justice of Madras High Court RK Agrawal on Wednesday expressed displeasure over certain unsavoury incidents during his tenure, including barging of a sitting judge into his chamber last month over an issue, and said he never experienced such a thing in a 37-year career.
Justice Agrawal has been elevated as a Judge of the Supreme Court.
Speaking at a farewell function got up on the occasion, he said in his entire 37-year-career, both in the Bar and the Bench, neither friends nor foes had ever raised their voices while speaking to him or addressing him in court proceedings.
Without naming anyone, he said his colleague had hurled invectives and cast aspirations at the affairs of the court over an issue.
He said he was not worried about personal comments but `pained` at innuendoes being targeted at the court and it was becoming the subject of public ridicule.
"If the court faces a loss of public confidence, then take it from me that you are the worst affected in society," he said.
He claimed many of the colleagues had expressed a desire to seek voluntary transfer to other High Courts following certain developments and that many judges from other High Courts are hesitant to come this Court.
