Jurisdiction of the Supreme Court in-house committee

This post refers to the jurisdiction of the Supreme Court's in-house committee probing the allegations against a retired Supreme Court Judge. With Outlook magazine giving the details of the Judge, it now appears certain that the Judge retired in February 2012 and  the alleged incident took place in Dec.2012. Will the in-house committee have the mandate to probe the incident?

On another note, the present situation may be entirely unprecedented as the in-house committee was considered only in the context of probing charges against sitting Judges.  This interview with some eminent jurists in Seminar in 2011 throws some light on the issue.
