Ever since the allegations of ‘unwelcome sexual advances’ were made by a law intern against Justice A K Ganguly, the case of one of the most scandalous incidents in the history of judiciary is seemingly getting more complex by the day.
According to the India TV report
“The Home Ministry has pointed out that under the Foreign Contribution Regulation Act, Justice Ganguly was an Indian public servant, and his staying at Park Lane, Block 5 in Clifton, Karachi, qualified as accepting "foreign hospitlity" without taking prior permission from the Centre or the West Bengal Governor, though it was required under Rule 6 of the WB Human Rights Commission Rules.The retired Supreme Court judge was a "guest" of Pakistani national Faisal Siddiqui.The Home Ministry has also said that Justice Ganguly's air tickets were paid for by an NGO Socio Legal Information Centre based in Delhi.The ministry has also said that Ganguly took paid employment when he conducted arbitration proceedings for the All India Football Federation while serving as WBHRC chairperson, an offence which can lead to his removal by the President under Sec 23(2) of National Human Rights Commission Act”.
Reacting to the new development he said”.”I have read about it (cabinet clearance of presidential reference) in newspapers. What can I say about it? The development of events is not in my hand. I haven't decided anything and would prefer to stay quiet,”
