‘This Is A Scandal’: Indira Jaising Slams SC In-House Panel’s Decision To Not Make CJI Sexual Harassment Probe Report Public

She said that citing her pre-RTI case as an example was "bad in law".

Human rights lawyer Indira Jaising on May 6 has slammed the Supreme Court in-house committee’s decision not to disclose the findings of the enquiry into allegations of sexual harassment against Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi.

A previous sexual harassment case filed by Jaisingh against a sitting High Court of Karnataka judge — ‘Indira Jaising v. Supreme Court of India & Anr. (2003) 5 SCC 494’ — was specifically mentioned in bold, to explain why the latest finding was not being made public.

Slamming the whole incident as a scandal, Jaising posted on Twitter that the case mentioned was a pre-RTI era case. She said that it is a flimsy excuse and demanded the disclosure of the findings in public interest.

The victim alleged that her family too was harassed.
