Former Supreme Court judge Ashok Kumar Ganguly on Thursday said that he has not yet 'decided' on whether to resign as the chairman of West Bengal Human Rights Commission.

"I have not decided anything," Justice Ganguly told PTI here.

Demands for his resignation from the WBHRC have echoed in several quarters following a three-judge Supreme Court committee's indictment of him over allegations of sexual harassment of a female law intern in December, 2012.

Asked about his next course of action in view of the possibility of the Union cabinet taking up the issue on Thursday, Ganguly said, "I will not comment on anything now."

The government is likely to take a decision on Thursday on sending a Presidential reference to the Supreme Court for conducting a probe into allegation of sexual harassment against Justice Ganguly.

The Home Ministry would place a note before the Union cabinet (to discuss the issue of sending Presidential reference in the Ganguly case), Union Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde had said on Wednesday.
