Woman judge raises objections over inquiry

 A woman judge in Gwalior, who has quit her job accusing a Madhya Pradesh High Court judge of sexually harassing her, has raised objections to the inclusion of a High Court judge in the committee set up to go into her complaint.

She has also expressed her inability to attend an inquiry in Jabalpur if her travel expenses, board and lodging consistent with her status are not provided and safety and security not guaranteed.

In the alternative, she was willing to attend the inquiry in Delhi, she said in her letter to the Secretary of the Committee for preliminary enquiry set up by the Madhya Pradesh High Court.

She raised objections to the inclusion of Justice Ajit Singh of Gwalior Bench, who is heading the committee, as he was involved in a decision to transfer her to Sidhi “for not succumbing to the advances made by the accused judge”, she said in the letter.
