A day after retired Supreme Court judge and West Bengal Human Rights Commission chairman A K Ganguly claimed he was being targeted by "powerful interests", the woman lawyer who has accused him of sexual harassment hit back at him and pointed out that she has the "discernment to pursue appropriate proceedings".
"At this stage, I believe that anyone claiming that my statements are false is showing disrespect not just to me, but also to the Supreme Court of India," she wrote in her blog on the Journal of Indian Law and Society on Tuesday. "I request that it be acknowledged that I have the discernment to pursue appropriate proceedings at appropriate times. I ask that my autonomy be respected fully," she wrote.
The lawyer has alleged that Ganguly sexually harassed her when she was interning with him in December last year. "Those who have been spreading rumours and politicising the issue are doing so out of prejudice and malice to obfuscate the issue and escape scrutiny and accountability," she wrote.
When contacted, Ganguly said: "Let her do her job. That is her prerogative. I have nothing to say over the content and I cannot even do anything about her writing in the blog."
