Madras HC Chief Justice VK Tahilramani set to resign?

CHENNAI: Madras High Court Chief Justice VK Tahilramani has decided to resign, two days after the Supreme Court Collegium rejected her request to reconsider her transfer to the Meghalaya High Court.

The Collegium, headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi, had recommended her transfer to the Meghalaya High Court on August 28. The Collegium has already transferred Chief Justice of Meghalaya High Court, Justice AK Mittal, to the Madras High Court.

Justice Tahilramani was elevated as the Chief Justice of Madras High Court on August 8 last year.

As the acting chief justice of the Bombay High Court, Justice Tahilramani had in May 2017 upheld the conviction, and life imprisonment of 11 people in the Bilkis Bano gang-rape case, which was transferred to Maharashtra from Gujarat by the top court.
