A month ago, a woman employee of the Supreme Court of India accused the Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi of sexual harassment at the workplace. An hour after the story broke in the media, the CJI constituted a special hearing wherein he called the allegations against him a 'bigger plot to deactivate the office of CJI'. Three days later, a committee with sitting judges junior to the CJI began investigating into the complainant's allegations. On May 6th, the in-house committee gave a clean chit to CJI. The Suno India Show reached out to Nikita Saxena, Staff Writer for The Caravan who broke the story for the magazine on the allegations and the subsequent clean chit and what this could potentially mean to women across the country who are victims of workplace harassment.
