One person was arrested for trying to enter West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee's residence here impersonating as a doctor, police said on Thursday. The 30-year-old man produced an identity card of a doctor engaged with a healthcare establishment in Pune but it turned out to be fake. A senior Kolkata Police officer said the man wanted to meet the chief minister yesterday on the pretext of expanding the healthcare facility in the state.

Banerjee was away in north Bengal yesterday. "Our officers posted there had some doubts. They detained him and took him to the Kalighat police station for
questioning," the IPS officer said adding that he was arrested later. Several documents have been seized from the man, identified as S K Aynal of Bankura district of West Bengal.

"He failed to clarify why he needed to visit the CM's residence. His answers are unsatisfactory. We are questioning him to get more details," he said.
