The Supreme Court has constituted a three-judge committee to go into the claims of a woman who has alleged that she was sexually harassed by sitting judge who retired recently. The woman, who did not speak out at the time of the harassment, wrote a blog titled ‘Through my Looking Glass” on the website of the Journal of Indian Law and Society on November 6.  She wrote, “In Delhi at that time……assistance of a highly reputed, recently retired Supreme Court judge whom I was working under during my penultimate semester…. For my supposed diligence, I was rewarded with sexual assault (not physically injurious, but nevertheless violating) from a man old enough to be my grandfather”.  Chief Justice P Sathasivam said, “In the cases of sexual harassment, we cannot take it lightly”.
