Hyderabad, July 28: The Hyderabad High Court today revoked the suspension of 11 lower court judges.

These judges had been suspended on disciplinary grounds following the Telangana Judges Association's agitation against the provisional allocation of judicial officers.

A senior judicial officer confirmed the development and added that these judges resumed the duty today.

Around 200 judicial officers working in various capacities in courts across Telangana had gone on a mass leave on June 28 during TJA's agitation against appointment of the judges from Andhra Pradesh to the Telangana courts.

Two days earlier, on June 26, over 100 judges, under TJA's banner, took out a procession and submitted a representation to the Governor protesting appointment of those hailing from Andhra Pradesh to the subordinate courts in Telangana.

The Hyderabad High Court, which is common to both the states post-bifurcation, then suspended 11 judges for taking part in the agitation.

The agitation was later called off after the judicial officers got an assurance from the Chief Justice of HC that their grievances would be looked into.
