Apex court rejects PIL to stay proceedings against AK Ganguly

A bench of Chief Justice P Sathasivam and Justice Ranjan Gogoi dismissed the PIL, saying that it cannot interfere in the issue at this stage and law will take its course in the matter.

‘We have gone through every word of your averments and prayers. We are not inclined to go into it. Its too early to say anything about it,’ the bench said, adding that ‘let the law take its own course’.

The court was hearing a PIL, filed by a woman doctor and Delhi resident M Padma Narayan Singh, seeking quashing of the complaint on which a three-member panel of apex court judge indicted Justice Ganguly, chairman of West Bengal Human Rights Commission, for unwelcome behaviour against a law intern.

The petitioner, who is a senior citizen, alleged that Ganguly has become a victim of conspiracy as he, as an arbitrator, had decided a matter between a prominent football club of Kolkata and All India Football Federation (AIFF) in which the intern had also participated.

The bench also dismissed another similar PIL filed on the issue. Justice Ganguly had already distanced himself from the petitions.
