Attack on Roopa Ganguly: SEC asks Kolkata police commissioner to probe
Kolkata: The State Election Commission today asked the South 24-Parganas district magistrate and Kolkata Police commissioner to inquire into the alleged attack on BJP leader Rupa Ganguly and take necessary action.
"We have asked the South 24-Parganas district magistrate and the Kolkata police commissioner to inquire into the matter
and take necessary action at the earliest," SEC S R Upadhayay said.
"We have asked if the BJP already had the permission, then why did the problem crop up all of a sudden? Were enough
policemen posted there? Has necessary action been taken in the case, has anyone been arrested," he asked.
The actress-turned politician's convoy was yesterday attacked allegedly by ruling TMC supporters in the city's upmarket Alipore area, where she had gone to campaign for the upcoming Kolkata Municipal Corporation election.
She alleged that she was attacked, her driver beaten up and the car damaged when she arrived in the area for campaigning in support of her party candidate.
