Supreme Court justices SJ Mukhopadhaya and NV Ramana have set aside declined to interfere with a Calcutta high court order that declined to cancel the bail of former NUJS Kolkata assistant registrar Siddhartha Guha, who is accused of having sexually harassed another staff member at the college, reported the Times of India.

Correction: We understand that the Times of India story was erreneous and we regret republishing their report. The Supreme Court did not interfere with the lower court's order, but said on 11 November:

There is nothing on record to suggest that the petitioner brought to the notice of the High Court that the accused/Respondent No.2-Siddhartha Guha who has been granted bail is threatening the petitioner. In that view of the matter, we are not inclined to interfere with the impugned order refusing cancellation of bail but give liberty to the petitioner to move before the High Court for cancellation of bail, in case of threat given by accused-respondent No.2. If any such petition is filed for cancellation of bail on the ground of threat given by the accused respondent NO.2, the Court may consider the same uninfluenced by the earlier order passed by the High Court or this Court.

The alleged victim, represented by advocates Siddharth Dave and Phiroze Edulji, alleged before the apex court that Guha had threatened her with an acid attack, as set out in a police complaint. The Supreme Court told her to approach the high court with evidence of why Guha should not be granted bail.

The sexual harassment case against NUJS Kolkata assistant registrar Siddhartha Guha, who was arrested late last year after a female staff member accused him of sexual harassment and violent threats, has climbed to the apex court over cancellation of his bail.

The woman, represented by advocates Siddharth Dave and Phiroze Edulji appealed to the Supreme Court for Guha's bail to be cancelled, after the trial court granted him bail after 14 days in jail, but Guha had filed a caveat petition in the apex court alerting him to the challenge.

The bench of justices Ranjana Prakash Desai and NV Ramana asked Guha's lawyer and the West Bengal government for arguments after the court vacations on why his bail should not be cancelled. [Times of India]
