S Krishnakumar, a former Kozhikode principal sessions judge, approached the high court. The judge who made the contentious comments in author Civic Chandran’s anticipatory bail decision, S Krishnakumar, was transferred. He has since complained to the High Court Administrative Committee over the transfer process.
S. Krishnakumar was transferred to Kollam Labor Court. He argues that the transfer method is unlawful in the complaint. Before he had served as a District Judge for three years, he was transferred.
Justice Kausar Edapagam’s panel heard the state government’s appeal over the anticipatory bail of author Civic Chandran. The government demanded that the bail order issued by the Kozhikode Principal Sessions Court be revoked since it contained contentious statements, such as that the complainant’s attire was provocative.
The words made in the order by Principal Sessions Judge S. Krishna Kumar are demeaning. Similar crimes have been done by Civic Chandran. Civic Chandran has a habit of insulting women. The order from the Sessions Court made anti-women comments. People would start to doubt the judges in the wake of such comments. It was also mentioned in the government’s appeal that the issue of what to wear and how to wear it relates to the fundamental right of personal freedom.
