Former Supreme Court judge Ashok Kumar Ganguly, accused of sexual harassment by a young woman law intern, on Tuesday said he was "undecided" on whether to resign from the chairmanship of West Bengal Human Rights Commission.

"I have not decided. I am undecided," Ganguly said here.

"Time has not come to think about it," he said when asked about his future course of action in view of demands for his resignation as the chairman of West Bengal Human Rights Commission (WBHRC) from certain quarters, while he has received support from some other sections.

BJP leader Sushma Swaraj last night demanded the resignation of Justice Ganguly, saying "not only Caesar's wife but Caesar too must be above suspicion".

Asked if Ganguly should step down from the post of chairman of WBHRC, former Chief Justice of India Altamas Kabir recently said, "One automatically does not resign on the basis of allegations. I know he had said that he was shocked and shattered. I never ever would believe that this is possible."
