Justice Ganguly seeks four weeks' time from NCW

December 17, 2013 16:09 IST

As pressure mounted on him to resign in the wake sexually harassment charges, chief of West Bengal Human Rights Commission Justice AK Ganguly has sought four weeks' time to respond to National Commission for Women which had asked him to explain his position.

"Justice Ganguly has sought four weeks' time citing he needs to collect all the documents regarding the case," Member of the NCW Nirmala Samant Prabhavalkar said.

The Commission had taken a suo motu cognisance of the case in which retired Supreme Court judge Ganguly was accused of sexually harassing a law intern and had sent notice to him in December 6 to explain his position post the indictment by the three-member panel of the Supreme Court.
