After the Justice A.K. Ganguly episode, yet another law intern has alleged sexual harassment at the hands of another former Supreme Court judge in 2011.

According to highly placed sources, the law intern had, in fact, sent a complaint to Chief Justice of India P. Sathasivam in November last, bringing the incident to his notice and requesting action against the judge concerned.

At that time, as a three-member Supreme Court panel was enquiring into the allegations levelled against Justice Ganguly, this complaint was not considered.

Later, the CJI reportedly informed the intern that he could not do anything in view of the Full Court decision on December 5 not to entertain any more complaints against retired judges. She was asked to ‘take appropriate action under law’ and, accordingly, the intern is likely to file a writ petition, the sources added.
