New Delhi: The first impeachment proceedings against a judge was taken up in the Rajya Sabha on Wednesday which converted into a court to take up a motion against Justice Soumitra Sen of the Calcutta High Court.
Justice Sen appeared before a 'bar' "posted" at the gate of the central aisle of the upper house facing the Chairman as CPI-M leader Sitaram Yechury moved motions against him.
The first of the two grounds of misconduct against Sen being cited in the motion is misappropriation of large sums of money, which he received in his capacity as receiver appointed by the high court.
The second ground is that he misrepresented facts with regard to the misappropriation of money before the High Court.
