Adv. Nilesh Jain started this petition to Supreme Court Secretary-General

The in-house inquiry committee gave a clean chit to CJI Ranjan Gogoi in connection with the alleged sexual harassment complaint filed by a former employee of the Supreme Court. The report was not made public and the case Indira Jaising v Supreme Court of India was cited in favour. The said case was also a case of sexual harassment by a sitting High Court of Karnataka. However, it was a pre-RTI case, at present, all administrative decisions are now part of the RTI Act. We demand "Due Process of Law" not "Dude Process of Law".

According to Prof. M Sridhar Acharyulu, former Central Information Commissioner Former CIC "The Supreme Court has a duty to inform the complainant and the people in general what process was adopted, which law was followed, whether principles of natural justice were adhered to, is there any provision for complainant to file appeal or seek review of this report, if so where and how, will she get opportunity to cross-examine the witnesses of respondent, whether witnesses who are subordinate staff members of apex court have deposed, if so what have they deposed etc". 

We also demand disclosure of the findings of the enquiry committee in public interest.
