Kolkata: Police have filed a chargesheet in a local court against Union minister and BJP MP Babul Supriyo on basis of a complaint lodged by TMC MLA Mahua Moitra in January. She alleged that Supriyo had used certain words and gestures which aimed at outraging her modesty during a television debate.
“We had summoned him thrice but he did not turn up,” a senior officer at Lalbazar police headquarters said.
When contacted, Supriyo told TOI, “I know nothing about it. Let them do whatever they want to do. I have nothing to say about it.”
Along with filing the chargesheet on Wednesday, the police officers also submitted footage from the TV programme in which the remarks were allegedly made by Supriyo.
“The court may issue a warrant against him,” said an officer. BJP state president Dilip Ghosh said, “We will fight this out in the streets and courts of law.”
