BJP MP Roopa Ganguly’s son arrested for rash driving

Kolkata | BJP’s Rajya Sabha member Roopa Ganguly’s 20-year old son has been arrested after he allegedly rammed his car into a wall.

Akash Mukhopadhyay will be presented before the court today.

Mukhopadhyay had smashed his black sedan through the wall on Thursday night. He was unhurt and locals said a few people, who were present at the spot, also narrowly escaped injuries.

He rammed his wall into a wall in south Kolkata’s Golf Garden on Thursday.

“It was sheer good luck that no lives were lost. There is a bustee close to the accident spot and children play there. Locals told me that two children were playing and a few youths were chatting close by when the car crashed into the wall,” said local councillor Archana Sengupta.

“The person driving the car also escaped unhurt. The front of the vehicle was completely destroyed. Locals were enraged after the accident. They told me that he has a habit of driving very fast,” he added.


Roopa Ganguly soon tweeted about the incident, and wrote on Twitter, “My son has met with an accident near my residence. I called police to care of it with all legal implications. No favours/politics plz, Law should take its own course”.
