The Hyderabad High Court suspended nine judges on 28 June on disciplinary grounds, following an agitation against provisional allocation of judicial officers between Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.

The High Court of Judicature at Hyderabad had suspended two judges on 27 June.

According to media reports, over 200 judges are going to go on mass leave to protest against suspension of their colleagues.

On 26 June, over 120 judges under the banner of Telangana Judges Association took out a procession in Hyderabad in protest against the provisional allocation.

They had also submitted a petition to Governor Narasimhan in this regard.

Advocates and judicial employees across Telangana launched an agitation on 6 June protesting the provisional allocation of judicial officers between AP and Telangana.

They are opposing allocation of judicial officers hailing from Andhra Pradesh to Telangana courts.

Telangana Advocates JAC co-convener T Sriranga Rao had said yesterday that the allocation was done by the High Court without taking into consideration the guidelines framed by the HC itself in February this year.
