Accountability = Transfer

Laxmi Rao, the judge who had begun making a habit of condoning rape, has been transferred. The Times of India reports:
Sessions judge Laxmi Rao was transferred from a sessions court to a civil court on Thursday. According to the notification dated August 17 issued by the registrar of the city civil and sessions courts, Rao has been transferred from court room number 32 to court room number 2 where she will deal with suits between private parties.
Well, I pity the people who take civil cases to her. If the judiciary was truly accountable, she'd be sacked, not transferred. This is how incompetence spreads.
