The law intern, who has alleged sexual harassment by a recently-retired Supreme Court judge, on Thursday sent certain applications and affidavits to the three-member committee probing the allegations levelled by her.
In a blog, the intern said she had presented all details of the case to the panel and asked media to "stop speculating" on her communications and continue to respect her "privacy".
Writing in the 'Journal for Indian Law and Society', she said that during the meeting with the panel on November 18, she had presented all the details of the case to the committee.
"As requested by the committee, I appeared before them on November 18. During the meeting, I presented all the details of the case to the committee. I am confident that the committee will follow all the different lines of enquiry, and will establish the truth of my statements," the blog quoted her saying.
"The committee has assured me complete confidentiality. Some media reports are violating the confidentiality of testimony given by the committee. They have been distorting facts, and misreporting my statements.
"Such pernicious and mala fide reporting must cease immediately. I would like to request the media to stop speculating on my communications with the committee, and continue to respect my privacy," she said.
Official sources also confirmed that the intern had not appeared before the panel on Wednesday and an affidavit has been filed seeking exemption from appearance.
"The intern, who was asked to appear before the committee yesterday, had sought exemption from appearance which was granted by the panel," they said.
