Even as Chief Justice Dattu has set up a three-judge committee to examine charges of sexual harassment, the High Court judge at the center of the controversy is facing the threat of impeachment. As per this report, more than 50 members of the Upper House have written to Vice President Hamid Ansari seeking the initiation of impeachment proceedings..The motion for removal signed by the Rajya Sabha members lists three grounds on which the impeachment has been sought, including the abuse of position. This development comes after a lengthy round of litigation, first initiated in August last year when a woman district judge approached the Supreme Court seeking a fair inquiry into allegations of sexual harassment..In the proceedings that followed, which included a gag order, Senior Advocate and former ASG, Indira Jaisingh represented the district judge, and senior counsel Harish Salve for the MP High Court. The High Court judge was represented by senior counsel Kapil Sibal..In December last year, the Bench of Justices JS Khehar and Arun Mishra delivered its judgment, calling for a fresh investigation by a Chief Justice of a state other than Madhya Pradesh. The Bench had also directed that the in-house mechanism be published on the Supreme Court’s website..Subsequently, an investigation was carried out by Karnataka’s Chief Justice, DH Waghela. It was his conclusion that a “deeper enquiry” was required, as a result of which another three-judge committee was set up.
