After almost 24 hours of silence following his meeting with the West Bengal Governor, Justice Ashok Ganguly finally confirmed that he has resigned as the chairman of the West Bengal Human Rights commission. "I submitted my resignation letter to Governor M K Narayan yesterday. And I was waiting for it to be accepted. My resignation letter has been accepted today," he told The Indian Express on Tuesday.
Monday was Justice Ganguly's last day in office, WBHRC Registrar Rabindranath Samanta said. "Till today, we were also not sure about his resignation and we were waiting for the news to come from the governor house," he added.
Justice Ganguly decided to resign after he was advised to do so by a former advocate general on Monday. Justice Ganguly had till now refused to resign, even after he was indicted by the Supreme Court appointed panel in November for allegedly harassing a lawyer who interned under him. The WBHRC now has just one member left, former DGP Naparajit Mukherjee.
