The Supreme Court on Thursday constituted a one-man panel of former apex court judge Justice A K Patnaik to hold an inquiry into the allegations of a larger conspiracy to frame Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi and fixing of benches in the top court.

The apex court asked the Directors of CBI and IB and Delhi Police Commissioner to cooperate with Justice Patnaik during the inquiry.

The top court, however, said that the inquiry will not deal with the allegations of sexual harassment against the CJI. The court said the outcome of the inquiry will not affect the in-house committee which is dealing with the complaint against the CJI.

The apex court also said that on the completion of the inquiry, Justice Patnaik will file a report in a sealed cover before the court after which the matter will be heard again. 

Anguished over the systematic attack to malign the judiciary, the Supreme Court said the time has come to send a message to the country that the top court was not vulnerable and nobody can remote-control it either by money or political power.
