The Supreme Court today reprimanded Sikkim High Court Chief Justice P D Dinakaran for filing motivated petition to delay the impeachment proceedings pending against him on corruption charges.
A bench comprising Justices G S Singhvi, C K Prasad and Karnataka High Court Chief Justice J S Khehar also vacated the stay against the inquiry against him on the charges of land grabbing, corruption and judicial misconduct.
The apex court also directed the removal of senior counsel P P Rao from the three member panel headed by sitting Supreme Court Judge Aftab Alam.
Vice President Hamid Ansari will have to appoint a new member to replace Mr Rao.
The three member committee was initially expected to submit its report by June 24 this year, but now the inquiry report is going to be delayed.
Justice Dinakaran whose elevation to the Supreme Court was put on hold following the media exposure of charges of corruption against him is due to retire in May next year.
Justice Dinakaran was shifted from Karnataka High Court to Sikkim High Court.
