The Supreme Court on Friday sought response from the Registrar of the Madhya Pradesh High Court on a plea by a woman judicial officer who had resigned in the wake of inquiry on her complaint of alleged sexual harassment against the sitting judge.
The High Court judge was given a clean chit in December 2017 by a Rajya Sabha appointed panel which probed the charges of sexual harassment against him.
She had resigned from the post of Additional Sesseions Judge in 2014.
The Bench sought response to the notice in six weeks.
The report of the panel comprising Supreme Court judge R Bhanumathi, Justice Manjula Chellur (then Bombay High Court judge) and jurist K K Venugopal (now Attorney General for India) giving clean chit to the judge was tabled before the Rajya Sabha on December 15, 2017.
