The Supreme Court has said, it will go to the root of the alleged conspiracy and sensational claims made by a lawyer that there was a larger conspiracy to frame Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi in the sexual harassment allegations against him.

A three-judge special bench headed by Justice Arun Mishra said today, the judiciary will not survive if fixers work and try to manipulate the institution as claimed.

The bench, also comprising justices RF Nariman and Deepak Gupta, asked lawyer Utsav Singh Bains, who has made claims of a larger conspiracy, to file another affidavit by tomorrow morning after he claimed that he has some more incriminating evidence. The bench said, it will take up the matter for hearing tomorrow.

The bench also clarified that there is no connection in the hearing of Bains' claims of larger conspiracy and the in-house inquiry ordered into the sexual harassment allegations against CJI.

Earlier in the day, the apex court directed chiefs of the CBI, IB and Delhi Police to appear and meet in chambers the three judges who are hearing Bains' claim.
