Sexual harassment: SC divests MP HC Judge from adm work

A sitting Madhya Pradesh High Court judge, accused of sexually harassing a former woman judicial officer, was on Thursday “divested” of administrative and supervisory authority on Thursday by the Supreme Court which also quashed a two-judge panel set up by the HC Chief Justice to probe his alleged misconduct.

Rapping the Chief Justice of the High Court for constituting a two-Judge Committee by which he clearly traversed beyond his jurisdictional authority under the “in-house procedure”, a bench headed by Justice J S Kehar also said the HC CJ should be kept out of the procedure of inquiry.
