A statement released by the Secretary-General reads that the report will be sent to the next senior judge after CJI Gogoi. “The in-house inquiry committee headed by Justice S A Bobde has found no substance in the allegations of sexual harassment made by ex-employee of the Supreme Court against the CJI”, the statement also read.
