Sexual harassment: Conspiracy against Chief Justice?

Sexual harassment: Conspiracy against Chief Justice?

Earlier in the day, the nation woke to the news that Ranjan Gogoi, the Chief Justice of India, is facing sexual harassment allegations from a junior assistant who worked with him for 45 days late last year.  The CJI has said that there is a plot to "deactivate the office of the CJI".  

As per a theory (call it stupid or otherwise), Gogoi is being targeted politically.  There was immense pressure from him from some quarters to order an investigation into the Rafale fighter jet deal.  Since he has not done it before elections, there is an attempt to finish his career, the theory says.

Nobody can be sure whether such theories should be believed or not.  But, you never know!
