Justice Sen has been accused of misappropriating 33 lakhs in 1983 when he was made a receiver of the court. He did not disclose this when he was made a judge in 2003. Sen was ordered to return the money with interest in 2006 by the Calcutta High Court. In 2008, the then Chief Justice of India, K G Balakrishnan had asked him to quit, but Sen refused.
