The law intern who alleged sexual harassment by a retired Supreme Court judge failed to report before the court-appointed three-member panel for completing her deposition on Wednesday.
On Monday, Justices R.M. Lodha, H.L. Dattu and Ranjana Desai recorded her statement during a two-hour deposition. She requested the committee to maintain confidentiality of her testimony until the probe was over. Accordingly, she was asked to come again on Wednesday but she didn’t. It is not clear whether she sent any letter.
On Monday, she also told the committee that she was not interested in pursuing the matter legally, according to highly placed legal sources.
The committee had been set up by Chief Justice of India P. Sathasivam to find out the veracity of the contents of the intern’s blog which appeared in a newspaper.
