3 judges pick up probe against 2 Odisha HC judges over loans, renovations in breach of rules

Live Law reported:

Exclusive: In-House Committee To Resume Inquiry Against Two Sitting Orissa HC Judges Tomorrow | Live Law

The three-member in-house committee headed by Justice S.J. Vazifdar, Chief Justice of Punjab & Haryana High Court is set to resume its probe into the allegations of abuse of power leveled against two sitting Judges of Odisha High Court – Justice Indrajit Mohanty and Sangam Kumar Sahoo. Other members of the enquiry committee are Justice T. Vaiphei, Chief Justice of Tripura High Court and Justice Arun Tandon, judge of Allahabad High Court.

In a letter, Justice Vazifdar has informed the complainant, RTI activist Mr. Jayant Kumar Das that the next meeting of the committee will be held on 1 and 2 February at 11 am.

Mr. Das, who is currently lodged in the District Jail, Puri, Orissa, had earlier this month made a representation to the Superintendent of Police, seeking permission to attend the meetings of the committee in person or through video conferencing. In another letter, he had requested the Registrar General of Orissa High Court to instruct the Orissa Police to abstain from handcuffing him while taking him out of the jail premises. Justice Vazifdar’s letter now asks him to “take necessary steps” to appear before the committee.
