Who will guard the guardians?

While giving it’s judgement in SHRIRANG YADAVRAO WAGHMARE VERSUS THE STATE OF MAHARASHTRA AND ORS, the SC judges made several observations related to how a judicial officer must show impeccable conduct not only in his professional life but also in personal life.

Today I came across some disturbing visuals in which a retired HC judge Justice Nooty Rammohan Rao, allegedly physically assaulted his daughter in law over dowry demand. I was so moved by this video that I decided to write a piece of blog. I saw little kids on the floor watching helplessly their mother being beaten by their father, Grandfather and Grandmother. I can myself imagine such things in rural India or even in lower, and lower middle class or whatever middle class you may call. but when I saw a Justice being involved in such an act is disturbing.

How can a man who has served Higher judiciary for years in justice delivery system himself perpetuates injustice in his own home?
