Press Trust of India  |  Bangalore 

A division bench headed by Justice K Sreedhar Rao gave the order when the PIL filed by a former police official and President of the 'Karnataka State Police Mahasangha (association)" Shashidhar came up for hearing.

The petitioner submitted that using their influence MPs and MLAs had got a number of police officials transferred according to their whims and fancies, which was in gross violation of Supreme Court orders.

He submitted that since 2010, a total of 140 officials had been transferred and prayed that they be quashed and the politicians behind the transfers be punished.
