West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s injury case was “an accident”, said a preliminary police report on Thursday.
According to ThePrint, the video footage report of local police, eyewitnesses, Trinamool Congress members testified that the incident resulted from an accident.
It mentioned that CM Banerjee was hurt when her car while manoeuvring through a crowded bazaar area, hit a small iron pillar.
Banerjee was waving at people from inside the vehicle with the car door open. She hurt her feet as the car door slammed shut after hitting the pillar on the narrow street.
Banerjee alleged she was attacked by four or five men who pushed her, banging the door of her car, causing injuries to her on Wednesday evening.
The incident happened in Nandigram while she was campaigning for the upcoming state assembly election.
Trinamool Congress (MC) party workers led by Rajya Sabha MP Derek O’Brien also filed a complaint with the Election Commission, stating it as a “deep-rooted conspiracy” to kill CM Banerjee.
Reportedly, Banerjee’s condition has improved, said a doctor from Seth Sukhlal Karnani Memorial Hospital, where she was admitted in Kolkata.
Meanwhile, the BJP has dismissed the entire incident as “drama”.
