Press Release

against Biased Judge Admitted

Justice Anant Dave of
the Gujarat High Court admitted a petition filed by eyewitnesses of
the Gulberg Massacre case alleging bias and unprofessional conduct
against Special Court Judge BU Joshi and seeking a transfer of the
Case from his Court. The case is now posted for March 15.

Though not staying the trial the HC advised petitioners to mention the
fact that the Transfer Petition was admitted before J Joshi that
normally means that proceedings do not proceed until it is heard and
disposed off. The detailed petition (annexed hereto) lays down
detailed grounds for the transfer including hostile and aggressive
remarks, deliberate non admitting crucial evidence and worst of all
curtailing the identification process of the accused.
