The In House panel investigating the allegations of sexual harassment against Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi has given him a clean chit in the case. The accusations against the chief justice were levelled by a former woman employee of the Supreme Court.
The three-member panel headed by Justice SA Bobde said in its report that it had found no substance in the allegations contained in the complaint made by the woman against Gogoi.
Other members of the in house panel are Justices Indira Banerjee and Indu Malhotra. The Secretary General of Supreme Court of India in a statement said the report has been submitted to "next senior judge competent to receive the report" as well as to the Chief Justice of India.
