Supreme Court seeks report from West Bengal after plea alleges influence in criminal probe by Calcutta High Court judge

The plea further alleges that although the investigation in the cases cited had earlier led to the arrest of one of the accused, it was now being thwarted.

In this regard, the petition has alleged that the Investigating Officer was summoned to the official chambers of Justice Sinha and that he was rebuked, reprimanded and ordered to drop the criminal investigation as the matter was purely civil in nature.

“The Hon’ble Judge was furious and claimed that police have interfered into a civil dispute and arrested someone who is not at all involved in any criminal activity. Hence, due to the involvement of the Hon’ble Judge, the Respondent No. 5 has not been able to make any further progress in the investigation … The Petitioners had never heard or imagined that a sitting Judge of the Hon’ble High Court would get involved in a dispute for the sake of her husband’s personal and professional gains, the plea states.
