The Supreme Court has directed the State of Uttar Pradesh to produce before it today the LLM student who had gone missing from Shahjahanpur, after her allegations of sexual harassment against former Union Minister and BJP leader Swami Chinmayanand surfaced online. The Court also directed the Registrar Judicial to make internal arrangements to facilitate her production in camera.

This order was passed today after the Court was informed that the LLM student who had gone missing on August 24 has been located in Rajasthan. The Court said that after it interacts with the girl, it will reassemble to pass further orders.

The LLM student from the Swami Shukdevanand Law College (SS Law College) in Shahjahanpur in Uttar Pradesh had posted videos online leveling allegations of sexual harassment against Swami Chinmayanand. The student went missing three days after the allegations were made.

The Court had taken suo motu cognizance of the incident after a group of lawyers had written a letter to the Court urging for the same. The matter was mentioned before the Bench headed by Justice NV Ramana on Wednesday.

When the suo motu case was taken up for hearing today by the Bench of Justices R Banumathi and AS Bopanna, the Court was informed by Advocate Shobha Gupta that the girl had been located in Rajasthan according to a statement released by the UP Police. She was being taken back to her home in Shahjahanpur from Rajasthan, the UP Police has claimed.
