The order of the Patna High Court states,

"Whereas, a disciplinary proceeding against [NAME OF THE JUDICIAL OFFICER AND DESIGNATION] is pending. Now, therefore, Hon'ble Court, in the exercise of the powers conferred by Sub-rule (1) of Rule 9 of the Bihar Government Servants (Classification, Control and Appeal) Rules, 2005, hereby places [NAME OF THE JUDICIAL OFFICER AND HIS/HER DESIGNATION] under suspension with immediate effect and till the pendency of the enquiry or until further orders with his headquarters attached with the District Judgeship's at [PLACE OF APPOINTMENT]".

The officer shall be entitled to get subsistence allowance as per Rule 96 of the Bihar Service Code during the suspension period."

It may be noted that as per the report of Hindi Daily, Dainik Bhaskar, the Patna High Court has taken this strict action against the above-named judicial officers due to allegations of corrupt conduct levelled against them.

Notably, accepting the full bench resolution of the Uttarakhand High Court and on the recommendation of the State Government, the Uttarakhand government has dismissed a Civil Judge from service for allegedly torturing a minor girl (13-year-old) who worked as a domestic help at her residence in Haridwar, Uttarakhand.

The U'khand Government issued a notification dated Wednesday (21st October) notifying that the Government has removed Deepali Sharma, Civil Judge (Senior Division) (Under Suspension) from Service.
