Kolkata high court judge, Justice Soumitra Sen has resigned his position a few days ahead of his appearance before the Lok Sabha for an impeachment hearing.
Soumitra Sen’s crime could be a minor one compared to what some other judges have indulged in. Country must clean up the system.

In indicting Soumitra Sen, Jaitley argued "litigants cannot be judged by a judge, who himself is stigmatised." If so which of our MPs is qualified to judge Sen? Vote in our exclusive poll now.
Justice Soumitra Sen said while he did not cast aspersions on judiciary, there seems to have been "abuse of power" by someone holding high office in judiciary. "They are too anxious to hold me guilty."
