Uttarakhand High Court Chief Justice KM Joseph and Justice S Abdul Nazeer are holding the enquiry.
Committee of judges investigating two sitting judges of Odisha High Court has stopped its proceedings after name of a Supreme Court judge came up during the investigations.
Justice Indrajit Mohanty and Judge Sangam Kumar Sahoo have been accused of the corruption.
Panel, headed by the Punjab and Haryana High Court Chief Justice SJ Vazifdar, has now written to the Chief Justice of India JS Khehar for guidance.
Complainants in case had appealed to the Prime Minister Narendra Modi and President Pranab Mukherjee, mentioning the involvement of Supreme Court judge. These representations have also been sent to Committee of judges.
Panel, which comprises Uttarakhand High Court Chief Justice KM Joseph and Justice S Abdul Nazeer, is conducting an inquiry against Justice Mohanty and Justice Sahoo for allegedly misusing their power and position.
In the letter, judges’ panel has stated that it was constituted only to probe the High Court judges and that it has no authority to investigate Supreme Court judge.
Punjab and Haryana High Court Chief Justice Vazifdar has refused to speak to media on the matter.
Complainants have alleged that Justice Indrajit Mohanty has promoted his business interests while being a judge. Judge Sangam Kumar Sahoo is alleged to have spent much more money than he is entitled to while renovating his official residence.
If two judges are found guilty, Chief justice can recommend that President impeach them.
