New Delhi: Activist lawyer Indira Jaising told the Supreme Court on Wednesday that women advocates don’t feel safe anymore in the top court and demanded a free and fair inquiry into the allegations of sexual harassment against Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi.

A special bench headed by Justices Arun Mishra was told by senior advocate Jaising that inquiry into the claims made by lawyer Utsav Singh Bains that there was “larger conspiracy” to frame the CJI, should not prejudice the inquiry by three judges of the apex court, on administrative side, into the allegations.

 

The bench, also comprising Justices R.F. Nariman and Deepak Gupta, clarified that these two are separate matters and the hearings about the claims made by the lawyer will not prejudice the inquiry.
