He refused to comment on the girl's affidavit, as published in a national daily, saying, "I will not say anything on this.”

The girl, who has passed out from a Kolkata law school, had in a sworn affidavit before a three-judge panel of Apex Court judges gave a detailed account of what happened to her in a Delhi hotel room on 24 December, 2012 when she was called by the judge at night.

The committee had indicted the former judge for 'unwelcome behaviour' and 'conduct of sexual nature' towards the girl who was then working as a law intern with him.

Ganguly has so far denied all the allegations against him and ruled out resigning as the head of the West Bengal Human Rights Commission (WBHRC).

Jaising has written to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh seeking Ganguly’s removal from the WBHRC.

Several women rights activists, political leaders from the BJP and Trinamool Congress (TMC) have also been demanding his removal.

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has written twice to President Pranab Mukherjee seeking strong action against the former judge.
