Judge among 4 held for 'immoral' acts

Here is story of another judge found caught in an act not so commensurate with his job duties:

Judge among 4 held for 'immoral' acts

Confirming the arrest, SSP Shrikant Jadhav said that police raided the premises after a resident of Punjabi Colony in Samalkha got suspicious about the activities in his neighbourhood and complained to the police. "We arrested all the four persons, including the civil judge, from the house. While the three accused were produced in a local court and sent to 14-day judicial custody, we are following the Supreme Court guidelines in dealing with the judge,'' he said.

Oh so cute, the 'common criminals' are sent to jail for 14 days, but the judge has to be given permission by another judge on what action can be taken against him! This exactly shows why there is urgent need for judicial accountability so that judges cannot escape the laws they themselves give judgment upon.
