The woman then started abusing him for stopping her car. But all of them were allowed to go after being slapped with fine.

The car jumped a traffic signal before hitting the pedestrian but no one got serious injuries, said traffic department officer.

The traffic police Chandan Pandey claimed, “She pushed me and asked who you are to stop me and took my official pocket-book. She also said that she was the niece of Mayor. ”

During the argument, more police rushed to the spot and asked the male friends to Tollygunge police station but the women argued and asked what their fault was. However, officers said, no charges were booked against the duo as they were not involved in this clash. 

Women could not be arrested after the sunset, said a senior officer, adding they were handed over to their guardians.

The police booked Mayor’s niece and her two female friends on a non-bailable charge of assault or criminal force to deter public servant from discharge of his duty under section 353.

Meanwhile, Mayor Sovan Chatterjee said, “The law will take its own course. Police are free to take action. I hope the matter is proposed properly. ”

IS IT VARY BAD TO ASSULT A POLICE ? WHAT ABOUT KILLING A POLICE ? In Nandigram, one police officer sadhucharan Chattopadhyaya was killed in Feb 2007. In March, 14 farmers died in police firing. So policeman was eliminated first, road was dug, panchayet leader sankar Samanta was eliminated, Maoists were very much present in Nandigram with weapons and providing training. Police firing was unfortunate, but it had occurred as an effect of many other unfortunate incidents occurred beforehand. Already sill commission told that dinhata police firing is ok. So, what was wrong with Nandigram firing? Can the present govt or any govt arrange rasagullas for road-diggers? CBI report had re-discovered everything.

VVIP Niece

Just proves that she's as ugly on the inside as outside. Wonder how some as unfortunate-looking as her has the gall to act like such a diva & throw her weight around? Maybe she's just angry over her resemblance to a Neanderthal and an set-extra from 'Planet of the Apes'. Definitely with a mental development to match. Way to go Debapriya! Your parents must be real proud!
