Following this the prosecution had submitted a petition under section 482 and 439 (2) of the CrPc alleging that the observations of the district court were illegal.

The district court judge was transferred to Kollam labour court. A few other judges were also transferred.

There are two cases pending against him filed by a Dalit writer and by another writer.
