Section 144 imposed outside Supreme Court after protests against CJI Gogoi

New Delhi | Section 144 has been imposed outside the Supreme Court after a number of women were seen protesting against the clearance of charges on CJI Ranjan Gogoi.

A group of women lawyers and activists participated in the protests, yelling slogans and carrying boards.

However, the police tried to dismiss the public from the court and in the process detained a few journalists who were covering the protest.

Over 30 women activists were also detained.

Yesterday, a three-judge panel gave a clean chit to CJI Ranjan Gogoi in the sexual harassment charges against him by a former court employee.

National Federation of India Women (NFIW) general secretary Annie Raja told India Today TV said the protest was being held to question the method adopted by the in-house investigation panel which gave a clean chit to Ranjan Gogoi.

“Today, my worst fears have come true, and all hopes of justice and redress from the highest court of the land have been shattered”, the woman who charged the CJI said.

According to Section 144, the assembly of four or more people is prohibited.
