Sex charge: Justice Ganguly to be removed?

New Delhi, Dec 31 : The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) on Tuesday said a note to remove former Supreme Court AK Ganguly, who is facing sexual harassment charges, as West Bengal Human Rights Commission chairperson, has been readied.


The Union Cabinet is expected to clear the note on Thursday.

After that, a formal advice will be sent to President Pranab Mukherjee to remove Justice Ganguly.

Meanwhile, law intern Stella James, who alleged that she was sexually harassed by Justice Ganguly, has slammed him for claiming innocence.

In a statement posted on Journal of Indian Law and Society, Stella said: "I would like to state that I have acted with utmost responsibility throughout, keeping in mind the seriousness of this situation.

"Those who have been spreading rumours and politicizing the issue, are doing so out of prejudice and malice to obfuscate the issue and escape scrutiny and accountability."

Justice Ganguly had written to Chief Justice of India (CJI) P Sathasivam on the issue.

According to reports, Justice Ganguly had complained that his side of the story is not being heard. He also protested against Additional Solicitor General (ASG) Indira Jaising making public the statement of the law intern.
