Kolkata: BJP leader Mukul Roy is granted bail by a Metropolitan Court in Kolkata on Wednesday in relation to ‘Biswa Bangla’ defamation case. Mamata’s nephew Abhishek Banerjee had filed a defamation case in November against Mukul Roy for alleging that Biswa Bangla is his property rather than government’s.
The anticipatory bail was accepted on a personal bond of one thousand rupees by Number 12 District Magistrate. The next hearing will be held on January 30. Mukul however still holds his allegations against Abhishek as true and claimed he had proof of the same.
“I will bring the paper from the Corporate Affairs Ministry and show that the ownership of the ‘Biswa Bangla’ was in the name of Abhishek Banerjee,” said Mukul.
Abhishek responded to him and said Mukul will quit poliotics if allegations against him are proven. “If Mukul Roy can prove the allegation, then I will never step in the political courtyard,” he said.
