New Delhi, Dec 5: The Supreme Court panel, responsible for investigating the young lawyer's sexual harassment complaint against retired justice A K Ganguly, has indicted the former of "unwelcome behaviour" of sexual nature.

The conclusive report of the panel was released on Thursday evening, which clearly disclosed "an act of unwelcome behaviour (unwelcome verbal/non-verbal conduct of sexual nature) by Mr. Justice (Retd.) A.K. Ganguly with her (law intern) in the room in hotel Le Meridien on 24.12.2012 approximately between 8.00 P.M. and 10.30 P.M."

Meanwhile, Chief Justice P Sathasivam said that no follow-up action is required by this court as "the intern was not an intern on the roll of the Supreme Court and that the concerned Judge had already demitted office on account of superannuation on the date of the incident, no further follow up action is required by this Court."

The order further stated,"As decided by the Full Court in its Meeting dated 5th December, 2013, it is made clear that the representations made against former Judges of this Court are not entertainable by the administration of the Supreme Court."

Now, it has asked the General Secretary to provide a copy of the panel report to the lawyer and Ganguly.
