Female judge alleges sexual harassment by her senior and quits in MP

Additional district and session’s judge in Gwalior resigned after alleging that she was sexually harassed by a High Court judge in the Madhya Pradesh high court. The female judge was heading the Vishaka committee against sexual harassment in her district. According to a report, the HC judge asked her to visit his bungalow alone and perform an 'item number' at a function in his residence. When she didn't turn up, he told her that he had "missed the opportunity of viewing a sexy and beautiful figure dancing on the floor and that he is desperate to see the same.
The story came to light after the female judge wrote a complaint to the Chief Justice of India RM Lodha, Supreme Court judges Justices H L Dattu, T S Thakur, Anil R Dave, Dipak Misra and Arun Misra, as well as the MP HC chief justice.
