Due to lack of evidence of any conspiracy to frame former CJI Ranjan Gogoi for sexual assault, the Supreme Court closed its suo motu investigation over the matter. However, Justice AK Patanaik's committee said the theory of conspiracy could not be ruled out. Reportedly, Gogoi was accused of sexually harassing former women employee. However, the SC's in-house enquiry had given him a clean chit in May 2019, citing zero case-substance.

Former Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi has been provided with 'Z+' VIP security cover by the Union government. Reportedly, Gogoi will be guarded with the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) and a team of 8-12 armed commandos accompanying him during all his travels. Besides, his house will also be guarded by a CRPF team. Earlier, the 66-year-old former CJI was nominated to the Rajya Sabha by the BJP government.
