Behrampore: Arpita Chowdhury, wife of former President of West Bengal Pradesh Congress Committee Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury has passed away on Tuesday. She was 48 years old.
Arpita had undergone a surgery a few months ago but recuperated after this. Recently she was suffering from a chest infection that led to breathing difficulties.
Because of this, Arpita was admitted to a private nursing home at their native place Behrampore in Murshidabad district.
On learning about wife’s death, the MP flew back to Kolkata later in the day and then went to Behrampore. On being contacted, he said that he is in no mood to make a comment of this.
In 2007, Arpita had attempted suicide due to alleged differences with Adhir Ranjan but survived due to timely medical intervention.
