Else, the law intern can file a criminal complaint and pursue it in a court of law

With the law intern’s affidavit filed before the three-judge probe panel clearly establishing that Justice A.K. Ganguly, Chairperson of the West Bengal Human Rights Commission, made “unwelcome sexual advances” at her, an option available to the Centre for his removal from office is through a Presidential reference to the Supreme Court.

Additional Solicitor General Indira Jaising wrote to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh that the Union government should make a Presidential reference invoking Section 23 (1A) of the Protection of Human Rights Act for the removal of Justice Ganguly.

The ASG said this provision must be invoked.

The other option is that the law intern must file a proper criminal complaint against Justice Ganguly and pursue it in a court of law to take the matter to its logical conclusion.
