Court to hear on April 24 police plea to cancel bail of SC ex-staffer in cheating case

New Delhi, April 20

A Delhi court on Saturday said it would hear on April 24 a police plea to cancel bail of a former Supreme Court employee, who accused Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi of sexual harassment, in a cheating and criminal intimidation case.

Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Manish Khurana listed the matter for the next date as the accused was not served with a copy of the police’s plea.

The police sought cancellation of bail granted to the woman on March 12, after the complainant claimed that he was being threatened by the woman and her associates.

An FIR for the alleged offences of cheating, criminal intimidation and criminal conspiracy was lodged against the woman on March 3, after a complaint by Naveen Kumar, a resident of Jhajjar in Haryana, was received at Tilak Marg Police Station here.

Kumar had alleged that the former apex court employee had defrauded him of Rs 50,000 which, he claimed, she took as part of a bribe, promising him a job at the court. PTI
