New Delhi: Supreme Court panel on Monday gives clean chit to Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi in the alleged sexual harassment case. 

The committee probing the case submitted its report on May 5, 2019. It has also made clear that the content of the report is not expected to be made public. 

The committee in its report has stated, “the in-house committee has found no substance in the allegations contained in the complaint…” 

A former junior court assistant on April 19 sent a complaint to 22 judges of the apex court alleging that CJI Gogoi had sexually harassed her and then “victimized” her family and her.

The CJI rubbished the allegations and convened a special hearing in the matter with Justices Arun Misra and Sanjiv Khanna and said that another bench would be constituted, to delve into the matter, of which the CJI was not a part of.  

However, the 35-year-old woman claimed that the constitution of the panel was not in accordance with the Vishakha guidelines, which says that the panel should have a woman majority and a woman member from outside to maintain transparency.

She also decided not to participate any more before the in-house inquiry panel.

"But due to serious concerns and reservations, I am no longer participating in these in-house committee proceedings," she said in a statement.
