mentioned for urgent hearing, agreed to take up the case on January 15.

IB confirms Mysore Roost Resort
The Intelligence Bureau has provided
the Centre with a detailed account of the escapade
involving three Karnataka High Court
judges on November 3 in a resort on the outskirts of
Mysore, highly placed sources told The
Times of India on Friday.
According to a senior official, “Most
of the information sought has not only confirmed the veracity
of the incident but the government has
crosschecked it with another police agency. Both the
The incident was widely reported in
the media. What has surprised the Centre is the “dogged
refusal” of the Karnataka police to
confirm the incident. “Mysore Police Commissioner C.
Chandrasekhar first denied that the
incident ever took place. Only when a public notice was
issued through the high court
registrar seeking information on the Mysore scandal, did the facts
come out in the open. Public protest
helped a lot,” says the source.
What transpired at the resort, says
the source, “cannot be expected from anyone in civil society,
leave alone persons sworn to upholding
the law”. According to him, “The IB report consists of
unmentionable facts and also makes it
amply clear that the Mysore incident is not the first time
such things have happened. Can anyone
expect upholders of the law to pick a fight with people
who complained to the police when
caught in a compromising position?”
In a related development, Karnataka
High Court Chief Justice N.K. Jain has written to Chief
Justice of India Justice G.B.
Pattanaik asking that three judges be transferred. Jain has proposed
that Justice N.S. Veerabhadraiah be
transferred to the Patna High Court, Justice
Chandrasekharaiah to Jammu &
Kashmir and Justice V. Gopala Gowda to the Gauhati High
While Jain is understood not to have
given any reasons, highly placed sources say the proposal
for transfers is linked to the Mysore
However, the source says that now the
government is worried about the appropriate “remedial
measures”. In such cases, transferring
a judge to a remote high court doesn’t always work. He
says, “Bar associations and the people
of northeastern states were up in arms when some
judges of the Punjab and Haryana high
courts were transferred there. We expect similar protests
if the CJI accepts Justice Jain’s
proposal to transfer the three judges of the Karnataka High
The Bar Council of India on Friday,
while expressing its anguish at the Karnataka incident, called
for “follow-up action”.
“Unless prompt and appropriate action
is taken, it will erode the faith of public in the only
institution considered to be the
bastion of our fighting faith in democracy,” it said in a statement.
The BCI has “lamented” inaction in
this case by “the higher judiciary and the government”.
names former India Supreme Court judge Ganguly in sex harassment allegation
Shocked, shattered by allegations: former Supreme
Court judge Ganguly
New Delhi: A three-member panel that probed the
charge of sexual harassment of a young lawyer by a Supreme Court judge has
submitted its report, identifying the judge as A K Ganguly, court sources said
The report was submitted on Thursday after the
committee of three judges met six times. This is the first time an alleged
perpetrator has been named.
The report, submitted to Chief Justice P
Sathasivam, also carries the statements of the victim, who interned in the
Supreme Court, and that of the now-retired Justice Ganguly, the sources said.
The graduate of Kolkata-based National University
of Judicial Sciences (NUJS) had alleged sexual harassment by Ganguly while
interning for him in December 2012.
The committee, which held six sittings on November
13, 19, 21, 26, and 27, submitted its report to Chief Justice Sathasivam on
The victim appeared before the committee on
November 19 and was expected to appear again on November 21 but chose to stay
She first mentioned the incident in a blog for
Journal of Indian Law and Society on November 6 and later told the same in an
interview with Legally India website.
The victim, who is working with Natural Justice:
Lawyers for Communities and Environment, said she heard that there were three
other girls besides her who were sexually harassed by the same judge.
She also claimed to have knowledge of four more
girls who were allegedly harassed by other judges in their chambers.
Denying any sexual harassment, Ganguly on Friday
said he was “shocked and shattered” by the charges against him.
“I am denying everything. I have told the
committee that all the allegations levelled by the intern are wrong. I don’t
know how such allegations have been levelled against me,” he said.
“I am a victim of situations,” he told television
“I am not ashamed of anything,” he said in reply
to a question regarding the alleged episode which came out in public after the
victim spoke about it in the legal portal earlier this month.
He said the charges against him were totally
wrong. The girl had not raised any sexual harassment issue with him, he said,
adding that he had not done any physical harm to her.
The former judge said the intern worked with him
though she was not officially allocated to him. She came in the place of
another intern who had gone abroad after marriage. “I never put up a poster.
She came on her own.”
said the girl had come to his house on a number of occasions in connection with
