New Delhi, Feb 14 (IANS) West Bengal Governor C.V. Ananda Bose’s convoy was hit by a private car in the national capital on Tuesday, a Delhi Police official said.
The incident took place when the Governor was reportedly going to meet the Union Home Minister to update him about the ongoing developments at Sandeshkhali in West Bengal’s North 24 Parganas.
Sharing the details, the official said that the incident was reported in the Inderpuri police station area.
“No harm or injury has been reported to anyone yet. The other vehicle (which hit the Governor’s escort vehicle) has been identified. Detailed questioning will be done,” said Deputy Commissioner of Police (West) Vichitra Veer.
Sandeshkhali has been witnessing protest by local women accusing harassments by absconding Trinamool Congress leader Sheikh Shahjahan and his associates.
Shahjahan is also the alleged mastermind of the attack on ED and CAPF sleuths at Sandeshkhali on January 5.
The Governor made a visit to Sandeshkhali on Monday morning and interacted with some local women there, who narrated their horrific tales of sexual harassment. He left for New Delhi on Monday evening only.
The Tuesday’s event in New Delhi triggered speculations about whether the incident has any connection with the Governor’s actions on Sandeshkhali developments.
