Bihar HC restrains lower court judge from judicial work after obtuse ordertext_fields
Patna: The Patna High Court on Friday restrained Additional District and Sessions Judge Avinash Kumar from judicial work until further orders. An administrative order to the effect has been issued to the lower court judge posted in Jhanjharpur sub-division of Madhubani district.
The move comes days after the judge made headlines for granting bail to a molestation accused on the condition that he wash and iron the clothes of all women in his village as repentence. He is also known to have passed similar obtuse orders in several matters in the past.
