Protests erupt outside Supreme Court in New Delhi

Dozens of Protesters gathered outside India's Supreme Court , a day after a Panel of Judges dismissed a sexual harassment complaint against the Chief Justice, carrying placards demanding a new and impartial investigation.

A Court statement said on Monday that a Former Court Assistant accused Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi of having made unwanted sexual advances last year, the most high-profile case in a wave of sexual harassment accusations . Gogoi has denied the charges and an internal panel of Judges cleared him of wrongdoing, 

But protesters gathered on a street in the Indian Capital said they were not satisfied with the decision.

Security was strengthened outside the Court, with dozens of Paramilitary Police and trucks carrying water cannons deployed in the area. Police quickly dispersed the crowd and most protesters were taken away in Police Vans soon after they gathered.
