Thiruvananthapuram: Justice P A Ramachandran, a magistrate of Thiruvananthapuram first class judicial magistrate court 3, who ordered a case be filed against Amrita, a college girl who hit the headlines by kicking and punching eve-teasers recently, was transferred as a repercussion of his order on Thursday.
The courage shown by Amrita, a final year degree student of a city college, has been widely applauded for the way she "handled" her tormentors at a wayside eatery on her way home after participating in "One Billion Rising" programme at Shanghumugham beach on February 14.
After her bold act appeared in the media, she has been showered with phone calls and letters praising the manner in which she handled the situation and a state minister even visited her home to pat the courageous girl.
Following the incident, police registered a case against the two eve teasers.
One of the accused, however, filed a private complaint in the court alleging he had been beaten up by the girl who also blocked his car.
Admitting the complaint, Justice Ramachandran Tuesday directed the city police to register a case and investigate the incident, which was criticised by leaders of various women outfits including state Women's Commission chairperson K C Rosakutty.
Ramachandran was transferred into a mobile court on an order of High Court registrar.
