Former Supreme Court judge A K Ganguly, accused of sexual harassment by a woman lawyer who interned under him, is contemplating resignation as chairman of the West Bengal Human Rights Commission (WBHRC).
"Justice Ganguly spoke to me over telephone and said that he is thinking of resigning (as WBHRC chief)," former Attorney General Soli Sorabjee told PTI on being asked about reports that the judge has written to him on the issue.
During the telephonic conversation, Justice Ganguly said so many things are being said about him and wanted his view. Sorabjee said he had told Justice Ganguly that it will be a "wise decision" to resign.
Justice Ganguly's talk with Sorabjee came close on the heels of the Union Cabinet approving a proposal for sending a Presidential reference to the Supreme Court on the issue, which was seen as a step towards his removal as WBHRC chairman.
When contacted in Kolkata earlier in the day, Justice Ganguly was non-committal. "Lets see," was his answer when asked about his future course of action in the case. He refused to elaborate anything further.
