Bombay High Court has cleared Judge Mrs. Anuja Prabhudesai of all charges and she has been reinstated as the District and Sessions Judge.
Legal fraternity suspects her suspension to be a conspiracy to sideline and abort her as she was to be elevated as Judge of the Bombay High Court and feels that it has to be probed whether her suspension was a very systematic ploy to sideline and abort her hopes of elevation as judge of the Bombay High Court.
Prabhudessai was suspended for using her discretion in awarding compensation in a motor vehicle accident claim petition and disbursing amount given by another judge. She is known to be very talented, well mannered, soft-spoken yet very firm in the dispensation of justice.
Though she was suspended by the judicial authorities of the Bombay High Court, many lawyers had protested against this decision.
