Kolkata: “I am Ankita Bhattacharya. My husband’s name is Indranath Bhattacharya. My father’s name is George Baker. My mother’s name is Taslima Nasreen.”
Taslima Nasreen had landed in controversy several times in the past. One of the main reasons would be her comments on religion. The other is about her sexual life. Taslima was married thrice. The first marriage was in the 80s. The next two marriages were in between 1990 and 1992. She has never hidden her sexual relations outside marriage. But there is a lot of controversy regarding her sexual partners.
BJP MP and an actor George Baker was born to a Greek family in Assam. He has worked in Assam, Bengali and Hindi films. He has also worked in theatre and television. He joined politics in 2014 and fought from Howrah constituency but did not win. After getting nod from the then President, he became a member of the Lok Sabha as an anglo-Indian.
Taslima Nasreen had a relationship with George Baker and presently has a daughter named Ankita Bhattacharya who is now a resident of Burdwan’s Narayanpur village under the Bhatar police station. She had spent her childhood in South 24 Parganas’ Behala. She was brought up by Gouri Bhattacharya, who happens to be George Baker’s wife Arpita’s sister. Gouri is no more but it is being heard that Ankita knew about her parent’s relationship from before. Ankita has provided few pictures as proof and also provided information about where will the proofs related to her birth be available.
Ankita had spent several years after her birth with father-mother George Baker and Taslima Nasreen. Ankita claimed that several pictures of that time was given to her by Gouri. She also said that though the childhood memories have faded a bit, but it did not get removed from her mind. She also said that more proofs and pictures are there with Gouri’s elder brother Ranajit. While Gouri was alive, Ankita got married to Bhatar’s Indranath Bhattacharya.
Ankita Bhattacharya also informed that after knowing this she contacted her father George Baker. She was happy to receive positive response from his side. Ankita said, “I got my father’s love from George Baker.” But it did not last long as he withdrew all contacts with Ankita after pressure from his wife Arpita.
Thinking of her father’s respect, Ankita had kept mum about the entire incident. But she alleged that she received several threats so that she does not reveal anything. She was also threatened to be killed, as Arpita claimed. “But I could not remain mum thinking of getting what is rightfully mine,” said Ankita.
Ankita did not say anything on whether she contacted her mother Taslima Nasreen who is presently staying in Delhi despite of not having an Indian citizenship.
