A Special Bench of the Supreme Court, led by Justice Arun Mishra, on Wednesday ordered the CBI Director, the Delhi Police Commissioner and the Intelligence Bureau chief to assemble at the judges’ chambers for a confidential meeting on the claims made by an advocate that the sexual allegations levelled against Chief Justice of India (CJI) Ranjan Gogoi is a part of a “
larger conspiracy” to frame him (Chief Justice) in a false case and make him resign.
Explaining why the three top officials have been called, Justice Mishra said “this is not just an inquiry, this is something more... We will not reveal anything. This will be kept totally a secret.”
The Bench, also comprising Justices Rohinton Nariman and Deepak Gupta, ordered the Delhi Police to provide lawyer Utsav Singh Bains "full protection" so that no one approaches him to either influence or threaten him and the evidence he has with him of the conspiracy afoot is kept safe.
