The judges’ dilemma The Supreme Court faces an extraordinary dilemma. By ordering an internal probe into the allegations made by a former law intern against Justice (retd.) A.K. Ganguly, it had shown alacrity in protecting the image of the judiciary and responsiveness towards the plight of an aggrieved woman. The disclosure of the preliminary finding of a three-judge panel, that the former judge had indulged in an act of “unwelcome behaviour” towards the intern, led to Mr. Ganguly’s resignation from the post of Chairperson of the West Bengal Human Rights Commission. The court now has to contend with yet another challenge to its image and credibility in the form of a complaint by another former intern who has alleged she suffered an unsavoury experience at the hands of Justice Swatanter Kumar, when he was a Supreme Court judge. Mr. Kumar, who is now Chairperson of the National Green Tribunal, has denied the allegations. The former intern has now approached the court with a petition seeking a perman ...
