Kolkata: West Bengal minister and senior TMC leader Chandrima Bhattacharya on Sunday filed a police complaint against BJP leader Amit Malviya for allegedly making ‘defamatory’ remarks against West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.

Bhattacharya’s police complaint was in response to Malviya’s post on X where he claimed that absconding TMC leader Sahajahan Sheikh, the main accused in the assault case on Enforcement Directorate sleuths, has managed to escape the clutches of law enforcement agencies because of ‘patronage of Mamata Banerjee.’

“Shahjahan, who claimed to be a don of Sandeshkhali, is absconding. This would not have been possible without the patronage of Mamata Banerjee, who is also the Home Minister of West Bengal,” read a portion of Malviya’s post on X.

“We have filed a police complaint and have urged police to take immediate action against Malviya for his defamatory remarks against Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee,” Bhattacharya told reporters.

Bhattacharya in her complaint also asked police to treat it as an ‘FIR and do the needful.’ The state BJP criticised the TMC for trying to use police to silence the truth.

“Whatever Amit Malviya has said is completely true. It is the TMC government which has been shielding the criminals and this tendency has only led to lawlessness in the state,” BJP leader Rahul Sinha said.
