Mr. Justice Hosur's transfer comes close on the heels of the transfer of the City Police Commissioner, C. Chandrashekar, and the Third Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate, Ravindranath, in the wake of the "Mysore resort episode".
Mr. Hosur's transfer has fuelled speculation that the Principal District and Sessions Judge has sought voluntary retirement from service, though he has two more years left for retirement.
It is learnt that the authorities found fault with Mr. Hosur, who is the highest judicial officer in the district, for not reporting the matter to the higher-ups. Even if the alleged episode was a rumour, the Principal District and Sessions Judge was expected to keep the authorities informed about the matter.
A delegation of senior lawyers of Mysore court called on Mr. Hosur in his chambers on Saturday evening. However, Mr. Hosur declined to comment on the issue when presspersons sought his reaction.
Though the reasons for the three high profile transfers have not been directly attributed to the episode, the transfers have assumed significance as they have come close on the heels of the hearing by a three-member Committee of Judges appointed by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, in Mysore on Saturday last.
