Clean chit for CJI in sexual harassment case

The three-judge Supreme Court panel investigating the allegations of sexual harassment against Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi has given CJI Gogoi a clean chit in the matter.

A statement from the Supreme Court secretary general said the report has been submitted to “next senior judge competent to receive the report” as well as to the Chief Justice of India.

The statement said the in-house committee has found substance in the allegations made by the former Supreme Court employee. The statement also said the report filed by the panel would not be made public.
