Actor and BJP leader Mithun Chakraborty is interrogated by Kolkata Police over his controversial speech during election campaigning for West Bengal polls.
This happened after an FIR was registered in Maniktala for his speech.
The 71-year-old actor is being interrogated virtually by the police over a complaint accusing him of inciting post-poll violence in West Bengal through his speeches.
Officers of the Maniktala police station in north Kolkata began questioning the actor, who is currently in Pune, at 10.20 am. “Till the last information was received, the questioning was still underway,” an officer told.
An FIR lodged at the police station alleged that the actor had used dialogues like ”Marbo ekhane lash porbe shoshane” (Will hit you here and the body will land in the crematorium) and ”Ek chobole chobi” (A snakebite will turn you into a photograph, meaning will kill you) at a rally here after joining the BJP on March 7.
