The woman staffer who had leveled sexual misconduct charges against former Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi has been reinstated by the Supreme Court.
The sources have told a media portal that she had joined duty and proceeded on leave. All her arrears too have been cleared.
The woman staffer had joined Supreme Court in May 2014 and she was placed at the residence office of the ex CJI Gogoi in October 2018. She had claimed victimization for resisting unwelcome advances and she later claimed that she was later transferred and then terminated from service.
An inquiry into her complaint by an In-House Committee, comprising Justices S A Bobde (the current CJI), Indu Malhotra and Indira Banerjee, had, however, “found no substance” in her charges and given a clean chit to the former CJI.
The women staffer, who had withdrawn from the proceedings of the inquiry committee on the ground that she was not allowed legal representation, had expressed disappointment over the findings.
The woman staffer had also alleged that her husband and brother-in-law, both posted with Delhi Police, were suspended in the months after she was fired from her job.
In June 2019, a media portal had reported that both her husband and brother-in-law had been reinstated in Delhi Police.
