The Supreme Court collegium on Friday transferred Justice Dinakaran to Sikkim high court.
On April 3, the collegium had asked the chief justice of Karnataka high court to go on leave.
Dinakaran, 59, has not been performing judicial functions after Rajya Sabha Chairman Hamid Ansari admitted a motion in December seeking his removal on charges of corruption, land-grab and abuse of the judicial office.
Allegations listed in the impeachment motion against Justice Dinakaran included possessing wealth disproportionate to known sources of income, unlawfully securing five housing board plots in the name of his wife and two daughters, entering into benami transactions, and acquiring and possessing agricultural holdings beyond ceiling limit.

What is it about Indian public services that a tainted man gets to continue his job in some way or the other?! In the private sector this insect of a man would have been fired unceremoniously. In China or in some Arab countries (even Korea), he would have been hanged. But in our Democratic system (the pride of our country's politicians and journalists, mind you!)...in our Democratic system, the judiciary simply allows Dinakaran to continue in Sikkim. Poor state.
