The Supreme Court on Tuesday refused to quash some of the charges framed against Sikkim High Court Chief Justice P.D. Dinakaran by a Rajya Sabha-appointed panel looking into allegations of corrupt practices and misconduct against him.

A bench headed by Justice G.S. Singhvi, however, allowed Justice Dinakaran’s plea seeking removal of senior advocate P.P. Rao from the inquiry panel.

The bench asked Rajya Sabha chairman and Vice-President Hamid Ansari to reconstitute the panel by replacing Mr. Rao with another distinguished jurist.

The court, however, made it clear that Justice Dinakaran will be facing the same charges which were framed by the three-member committee comprising Supreme Court judge Justice Aftab Alam, Karnataka High Court Chief Justice J.S. Khehar and senior advocate P.P. Rao.

Rajya Sabha Chairman Hamid Ansari had in January 2010 constituted the three-member panel to examine the 12 charges framed in the notice of motion adopted by the House.
