If, on information received from the supreme judicial council or from any other source, the president is of the opinion that a judge of the high court is incapable of properly performing his duties due to physical or mental incapacity or he has been guilty of gross misconduct, the president shall direct the supreme judicial council to inquire into the matter. If the council, on inquiry, finds him so incapable physically or mentally or guilty of misconduct, and report to the president accordingly, he may remove the judge from office.
