SC rejects plea to block action against GangulyNew Delhi, Jan 6 - The Supreme Court Monday dismissed a petition seeking to restrain the government from proceeding against Justice (retd) A. K. Ganguly, accused of sexually harassing a law intern in December 2012.

Chief Justice P. Sathasivam, dismissing the plea by Dr. M. Padma Narayan Singh, said: "We have gone into every word of your averment. We are not going to say anything. We are not expressing any opinion as it may affect the parties. It is too early."

"This is not a matter for our intervention at this stage. We are dismissing it," Chief Justice Sathasivam said.

Besides, the apex court bench also dismissed another plea by lawyer Uday Gupta, who urged the court to frame regulations for the conduct of retired judges.

The court said: "If you are really representing (for framing of regulations on the conduct of judges), then you make representation to the government."

Declining to entertain the plea by Gupta, the chief justice said: "Sorry, we cannot entertain your plea. We are dismissing both the petition. Let the law take its course." (IANS)
