BANGALORE: Buta Singh, chairman of the National Commission for
Scheduled Castes, on Saturday promised that he would take note of the
outcry raised by the SC/ST Advocates' Forum regarding the transfer of
Chief Justice P D Dinakaran from the Karnataka High Court.

After participating in a meeting with the representatives of SC/ST
Employees Association, Singh told Express, "I have taken note of the
issue raised by the forum of SC/ST advocates.

I will take a decision soon in this regard." K P Venkatesh, president
of the SC/ ST Advocates' Forum, had earlier submitted the memorandum
to the commission, stating that Dinakaran was being made a scapegoat
though he had proved his honesty and integrity.

Vested interests had targeted Dinakaran and the Supreme Court had not
taken any action against the advocates who wrongly targeted the
judiciary, he said in the memorandum.

"The collegium of the Supreme Court should take the appropriate
decision in this matter as Justice PD Dinakaran was appointed by the
apex court," Singh added.
