Former Supreme Court judge Justice Ashok Kumar Ganguly on Thursday refused to comment on his reported indictment by a three-judge Supreme Court panel in a complaint by a young woman law intern that he had allegedly sexually harassed her.
“I won’t say anything,” Justice Ganguly told PTI when asked for his reaction on the indictment by a Supreme Court three-judge panel which said the law intern’s statement prima facie discloses “unwelcome behaviour.”
“I don’t know what the Supreme Court has said. I won’t make any comment,” Justice Ganguly, Chairman of West Bengal Human Rights Commission (WBHRC), said.
Justice Ganguly has all along denied the allegation made by the law intern that she was sexually harassed by him in his room in a five-star hotel in Delhi on Christmas-eve last year.
