Mamata cartoon’s case was downed so coldly that never to be expected. Four accused that had arrested in connection with Prof. Ambikesh Mahapatra who was arrested on April 13, 2012 in charge of posting a cartoon on a social network site directing Mamata Banerjee, were bailed by a City court.
Shocking fact was that there was no strong reaction from side of West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee’s govt.
Prof. Mahapatra from Jadvapur University was the main assaulter who was arrest for defamation, outraging the modesty of a woman and hacking and directed her in poor light.
He accused for communicating the post related to a cartoon graph of Mamata Banerjee with railway minister Mukul Roy and his predecessor Dinesh Trivedi on a social network site.
Just one day after arresting him along with his neighbour Subrata Sengupta, arrest of other four had been performed on his written complaint to Police.
Amit Sardar, Arup Mukherjee, Sk Mustafa and Nishikanta Ghorai were the four people arrested on charge of criminal intimidation, causing hurt and wrongful restraint, but they all bailed immediately on personal security bonds of Rs 500 each under the Indian Penal Code.
According to Source report, Prof alleged that a group of 15 people had assaulted him on Thursday night for posting the cartoons. He also said that they told him to declare that he was a member of the Communist Party of India (Marxist).
“I had to spend the night in the custody while those who assaulted me were granted bail shortly after they were arrested. I have nothing to say in this regard. People are witness to the developments and they will decide on this,” Mr. Mahaptara told reporter.
