In a bothersome incident, a woman judge wrote a letter to the Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud asking his permission to end her life after allegedly facing constant sexual assault by colleagues.

In her letter, the woman, a civil judge from Banda district of Uttar Pradesh, stated that she has been harassed by a district judge and “cannot fight the system anymore”.

“I joined the judicial system with such enthusiasm and the belief that I would dispense justice to the common folk. What did I know that I will be soon rendered as a beggar for justice on every door that I go,” read the letter.
