New Delhi: Sikkim High Court Chief Justice PD Dinakaran on Tuesday moved the Supreme Court seeking stay of the
impeachment proceedings initiated against him for alleged
misconduct and corruption.

Justice Dinakaran challenged the proceedings before a
three-member Rajya Sabha-appointed inquiry panel which has
been hearing the charges of alleged land grabbing and
possession of wealth disproportionate to his known sources
of income.

He has sought quashing of the order of the panel which
has refused his plea for the recusal of senior advocate PP
Rao on the ground that he was biased against him.

The panel, headed by Justice Aftab Alam of the Supreme
Court, also includes Karnataka High Court Chief Justice JS
Khehar, besides Rao.
