New Delhi: The dismissed woman Supreme Court employee, who had accused the CJI Ranjan Gogoi of sexual harassment, has asked for the reports of investigation done by the internal panel of Supreme Court on Tuesday.
She asked the copy of inquiry report to know "how, why and on what basis" the panel found her complaint ‘without evidence.’
Her letter to the panel of Justices SA Bobde, Indu Malhotra and Indira Banerjee, released to the media by her lawyers. The woman said, “If a copy of the report is being given to the CJI directly or indirectly, I am entitled to a copy thereof in any case. Not providing a copy to the complainant while holding her complaint to be unfounded would be a violation of the principles of natural justice and a complete travesty of justice.”
The Supreme Court Secretary General issued a statement on Monday that in-house panel “found no substance in the allegations contained in the April 19 complaint of a former SC employee”. Keeping the Indira Jaising case judgement 2003 in mind, he said the reports would not be made public, as the SC banned in-house inquiry reports from being made public.
