New Delhi: Three member panel has been set up by Vice president Hamid Ansari to initiate the proceedings of the impeachment against Madhya Pradesh Judge SK Gangele.

The MP Judge has been accused of sexually harassing a former Additional District and Sessions judge in Gwalior. In her complaint she said that her administrative judge kept pestering her to visit him at his bungalow alone. She also alleged that he had sent her a message to ‘perform on an item song’.

She resigned from her position after being transferred to a remote district. After her resignation, she wrote to the President, Chief Justice of India and the Chief justice of Madhya Pradesh High Court leveling the allegations against Gangele.

She alleged that she was transferred when she resisted his advances. Over 50 Rajya Sabha MPs have submitted a petition of Ansari seeking action against the accused judge.
