Justice AK Ganguly finally resigns

Retired Justice AK Ganguly has finally submitted his resignation from the post of Chairperson of West Bengal Human Rights Commission on Monday. He has sent his resignation to the state Governor M K Narayanan. His drastic decision perhaps signals the end of an ongoing spat that has been continuing for the last couple of months. The elite position of the Human Rights Commission has been stained certainly due to the roar. While the state government has been constantly raising their claims for Ganguly’s resignation, the other parties also did not stand by him. The allegation of sexual harassment of a law intern has reached another climax. Justice Ganguly had been reluctant in resigning and even the union cabinet cleared the presidential references. Retired Justice Ganguly had also written letters to the Chief justice of the Supreme Court with a copy marked to the President. However, AK Ganguly preferred to remain silence in front of the media.
