The Supreme Court on Wednesday summoned the CBI Chief, the IB chief and the Delhi Commissioner of police to look at evidence produced by a Punjab based lawyer who claimed the recent sexual harassment charges levelled against CJI Ranjan Gogoi was a larger conspiracy by vested interests. A bench led by Justice Arun Misra in this context referred to a recent attempt by a corporate house to change an order against it. The court will again assemble at three to further deal with the case. The court order came after lawyer Utsav Bains handed over some CCTV footage in a sealed cover as evidence of the larger conspiracy. The top court has already ordered an in house enquiry into the woman's charges against the CJI. The probe panel includes Justice S.A. Bobde, next in line to be CJI when CJI Gogoi demits office later this year and Justices N.V. Ramana and Indira Bannerjee. The bench comprising Justices Mishra, R F Nariman and Deepak Gupta is looking at allegations of bench fixing and bribery to get judgements parallelly on the judicial side.
