A magistrate has been stood down while a specially selected panel probes serious sexual assault allegations levelled against him.
The Age understands Melbourne magistrate Raj Malhotra is being investigated for allegedly sexually assaulting a junior colleague at a work Christmas party and inciting violence against a male staff member.
The attorney-general Martin Pakula and the chief magistrate Peter Lauritsen had each referred a magistrate to the Judicial Commission of Victoria.
Mr Pakula referred a magistrate to the commission in December, and Mr Lauritsen made another referral about a magistrate a month later.
