Sinha was appointed as the 21st chief justice to the Supreme Court on Jan 17, 2015. Justice Sinha is the first chief justice of Bangladesh to resign from his post. After Justice Sinha went on leave, the Supreme Court cited 11 allegations of corruption, money laundering, financial irregularities and moral lapse against him. Sinha’s colleagues refused to work with him after he failed to ‘acceptably’ explain the allegations, the Supreme Court said. In October, President Hamid appointed senior Appellate Division Justice Md Abdul Wahhab Miah to head the Supreme Court during Sinha’s absence.
