Kolkata, 6 December: Former Supreme Court Judge A K Ganguly today refused to comment on the growing demand for his resignation from the post of West Bengal Human Rights Commission Chairman in the wake of his indictment by a Supreme Court panel in a complaint of sexual harassment by a law intern.
“Don’t disturb me ~ Don’t disturb me. I have tolerated enough,” a visibly angry Mr Justice Ganguly told reporters when he stepped out of his house here today.
West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee yesterday wrote to President Pranab Mukherjee asking him to take “appropriate action” urgently against the “grave misconduct” of the former Supreme Court Judge.
A three-judge committee of the Supreme Court had concluded that the statement of the law intern, who had complained against Mr Justice Ganguly, prima facie disclosed an “act of unwelcome behaviour” and “conduct of sexual nature” on the part of the retired judge.
