There are also reports that Justice Shukla might soon go on a long leave after being stripped of all the judicial works.

The newspaper added that according to the list of business released by the Allahabad high court registry for January 30, Shukla's name does not appear on the roster.

Sources familiar with the matter said that justice Shukla has not been attending the high court since the last week as all judicial work has been taken away from him.

The Indian Express, quoting sources, on Monday reported that a report submitted by the in-house committee set up by Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra to investigate allegations of corruption against Justice Shukla contains "adverse" remarks against the latter.

The Chief Justice of India has accepted the recommendations of the three-member panel constituted by him in November past year to look into the alleged allegations against Justice Shukla.

Shukla allegedly allowed a medical college in Uttar Pradesh to admit students for 2017-18 by making hand-written corrections on September 4, 2017, to his own bench's order of September 1.

The inquiry committee has found Justice Shukla guilty of impropriety and has asked for his removal from office. Justice Shukla, who refuted all the charges, did not accept the suggestions of the CJI. The CJI was getting a higher amount than this, while the judges of the high courts were getting a lesser amount. Justice Quddusi was arrested days after the agency filed an FIR against him and four others. Former Orissa high court judge IM Quddusi was also booked by the CBI for an alleged fixing case. The CJI will now decide whether the CBI should probe Justice Shukla as well.

Subsequently, an MCI report revealed the substandard infrastructural facilities and failure to meet the required criteria.
