Mumbai, Oct 1 (UNI) Four additional sessions judges, including those who are presiding over the post-Godhra massacre and Bilkis Bano rape case, the fake stamp paper case involving Abdul Karim Telgi, and the Pramod Mahajan murder case, are likely to be transferred out of Mumbai.

All four judges -- U D Salvi, S P Davare, A R Joshi and R B Mallik -- were called to the Bombay High Court and informed about their transfers, according to sources. They are likely to transferred to Solapur, Aurangabad, Ratnagiri and Kolhapur respectively.
