Ganguly should step down as Bengal rights panel chief: Trinamool
Friday November 29, 2013 11:09 PM, IANS

West Bengal's ruling Trinamool Congress Friday demanded the resignation of the state human rights panel chairman Asok Kumar Ganguly who has been accused of sexual harassment by a law intern.

"He has no moral right to continue as the chief of the human rights panel. What he did is a big blot to the judicial system of the country and a person who himself is an accused should not be allowed to determine about others' rights," said Trinamool MP Kalyan Banerjee.

A three-member panel that probed the charge of sexual harassment of a young lawyer by a Supreme Court judge, now retired, has identified Ganguly as the judge.

Ganguly though has denied the allegations.

The Mamata Banerjee-led state government and the rights panel do not share a cordial relationship. Besides making several recommendations against it, Ganguly has been vociferous in deriding the Banerjee regime over several issues including the rising crime chart.

In turn, the state government has been seeking clarifications regarding Ganguly's trip to Pakistan earlier this year.
