The allegation by a law intern that she was sexually harassed by a retired judge of the Supreme Court in 2012 is mortifying. It is heartening that the Chief Justice of India has constituted a committee of judges to probe the allegation.
The Chief Justice has done well to take swift action. If the allegation against the retired judge is true, it is a matter of grave concern. In the present case, it relates to something that happened in 2012. One wonders why the woman took so long to talk about it.
