Would be travesty of justice: Somnath

Coming to the defence of beleaguered Justice AK Ganguly again, former Lok Sabha speaker Somnath Chatterjee on Thursday said it would be a ‘travesty of justice’ if the Supreme Court was requested by the Centre to probe into the allegations against him afresh.

‘It would be a travesty of justice. The Supreme Court has already made an administrative inquiry. How can the Supreme Court go into its own findings again?’ Chatterjee told PTI.

He was commenting on the home ministry seeking the opinion of the law ministry for sending a presidential reference to the Supreme Court to probe the allegations against Justice Ganguly and give its recommendations on the issue of removing him as chairman of West Bengal Human Rights Commission.

‘Senior judges of the Supreme Court were part of the inquiry panel,’ Chatterjee said referring to the three-judge panel which had indicted Justice Ganguly after going into the allegations of a law intern.
