The Uttarakhand Government has dismissed a Civil Judge from service after accepting the full bench resolution of the Uttarakhand High Court and on the recommendation of the State Government for allegedly torturing a minor girl who used to work as a domestic help at her residence in Haridwar, Uttarakhand.
