JUSTICE S.A BOBDE CONSTITUTES A PANEL TO PROBE INTO SEXUAL HARASSMENT ALLEGATIONS ON CJI RANJAN GOGOI; SAID FIRST HEARING WILL BE HELD ON APRIL 26

On April 23, 2019 a three member panel was constituted after the CJI led bench got criticized for dealing with the matter suo moto. Supreme Court Advocates on Record Association, Supreme Court Bar Association and other advocates had expressed their dissent for the procedure which was adopted by the bench for the CJI heading the bench in which he himself is the prime accused, this being against the Principles of Natural Justice.

Justice S A Bobde is the next CJI in seniority. He has decided to form a panel of Judges for looking into the matter of sexual harassment allegations levelled against the current CJI Ranjan Gogoi. It will include Justice N V Ramana and Justice Indira Banerjee.

Justice Bobde said that an in-house inquiry will be conducted into the allegations levelled. There will be no time frame to complete the inquiry. The future course of action will depend on the result of the inquiry. This whole procedure will be confidential. The very first hearing of the matter is scheduled to be heard on Friday, April 26. He said:

"This is going to be an in-house procedure which does not contemplate representation of advocate on behalf of parties. It is not a formal judicial proceeding,"

The woman, an ex staff of Supreme Court, who made such accusations on the current CJI has been issued a notice by the Supreme Court panel headed by Justice Bobde and asked her to be present on Friday.
