“I resumed office today and all my colleagues have been warm and welcoming. It has been a tough one and half months for me and my family. I wish no one has to go through what I have gone through,” Johri told PTI on Wednesday.

There have been speculations about Johri tendering his resignation but he rubbished the rumours.

“My wife Seema, the two sons sat through every meeting with my legal team. They were a part of my defence. Had my family and friends not been around, I would have found it mentally difficult to fight this battle. I had faith in god that I will come out clean from this mess,” Johri said.
