Home, law ministries meet to discuss Ganguly case

New Delhi, Dec 17 : The union home ministry is consulting the law ministry on demands for removal of Justice (retd) A.K. Ganguly as the chief of the West Bengal human rights panel following allegations of sexual harassment against him, official sources said.


The sources said consultations have begun over letters written by West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee to President Pranab Mukherjee seeking action against Ganguly.

The letters were sent by the president to the home ministry.

West Bengal's ruling Trinamool Congress has been at the forefront in protests against Ganguly, seeking his resignation, and Banerjee has twice written to the president urging action in the case.

Additional Solicitor General Indira Jaising Sunday revealed the affidavit by the law intern who has accused Ganguly of sexual harassment.

The affidavit was submitted to a Supreme Court panel, which indicted Ganguly, finding him guilty of "unwelcome behaviour" towards the intern.
