Agency News

New Delhi, May 6 : Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi was on Monday absolved of all charges in a sexual harassment case.

The Supreme Court in-house panel, which inquired into the allegations of the former staffer of the CJI against him, gave him the all-clear.

It dismissed the complaint of the former staffer of the CJI of sexual harassment, finding there was no substance in the charges. Justice S A Bobde headed the in house probe panel along with Justices Indira Banerjee and Indu Malhotra of the apex court.

The three member in-house committee found no substance in the sexual harassment allegations against the CJI. The statement said the report of the in-house committee shall not be made public. Justice N V Ramana, who was earlier one of the judges in the in house panel, recused after the victim claimed of his proximity to the CJI. Justice Ramana is a frequent visitor to the house of CJI Gogoi, so she might not get justice. As a result he withdrew from the in-house panel committee.

Then Justice Indu Malhotra has been inducted to the three member in house panel. (UNI)
