Impeachment proceedings against Justice Sen begin

Impeachment proceedings began Wednesday against Calcutta High Court Judge Soumitra Sen with Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) MP Sitaram Yechury moving the motion against him in the Rajya Sabha  

New Delhi: The Rajya Sabha Thursday passed a motion to impeach Justice Soumitra Sen of the Calcutta High Court by a majority of 172 votes. Of the 207 members present in the house, 189 voted in favour of the motion, while 17 voted against it. One MP abstained.

This is the first time the Rajya Sabha has passed an impeachment motion.

The controversial judge was found guilty by a special committee constituted by Rajya Sabha chairman Hamid Ansari. The committee found charges of financial irregularities against Justice Sen to be correct. He is accused of misappropriating around Rs.24 lakh in the 1990s when he was a lawyer and appointed receiver by the Calcutta High Court.
