Thackeray FB probe case: Bombay HC transfers Palghar judge
Mumbai: The Bombay High Court has transferred the judge who sent two girls to judicial custody last week, and granted them bail on a bond of Rs 15,000 each last week.
The girls had been arrested for their Facebook posts, which questioned the need for a shutdown in Mumbai for the funeral of former Shive Sena chief Bal Thackeray.
First class judicial magistrate Ramchandra Bagade has been transferred to Jalgaon from Palghar with immediate effect.
An enquiry report on the arrest of two girls for their Facebook comments against the Mumbai shutdown called by Shiv Sena has indicted the policemen for initiating action and observed that the arrests could have been avoided.
