Accused of sexually harassing intern, Justice AK Ganguly reveals her name in his book

Accused of sexually harassing intern, Justice AK Ganguly reveals her name in his book

He was forced to resign as the West Bengal Human Rights Commission chief after the former law intern's allegations.

Former Supreme Court Judge AK Ganguly has allegedly revealed the name of the female intern who accused him of sexual harassment. The name has been revealed in his newly published book.

The revelation was made by senior advocate Indira Jaising who was representing the victim before the Supreme Court panel.

He was forced to resign as the West Bengal Human Rights Commission chief after the former law intern's allegations.

Justice Ganguly had been defiant on the sexual harassment allegations leveled against him by the law intern. He had hit out at the West Bengal government of hatching a conspiracy against him and blamed the Supreme Court for going out of its jurisdiction in accepting the complaint against him.

"I have not done anything to feel ashamed of. The allegations were made by the intern 11 months after the incident. This was organised to defame me. The West Bengal government was very uncomfortable with me as the WBHRC Chief," Justice Ganguly had said.
