West Bengal Police Form Special Team to Investigate Molestation Accusations Against Governor CV Ananda Bose

Authorities revealed on Saturday that West Bengal Police have established a dedicated team to investigate allegations of molestation leveled against Governor CV Ananda Bose by a female employee at Raj Bhavan.

Indira Mukherjee, Deputy Commissioner of Central Division at Kolkata Police, confirmed the formation of the inquiry team, stating that they would be interviewing potential witnesses in the coming days. Additionally, efforts are underway to procure CCTV footage if available to aid in the investigation.

The controversy emerged when a Raj Bhavan employee in Kolkata lodged a complaint with the Hare Street police on Thursday, accusing Bengal Governor CV Ananda Bose of sexual harassment.

In response to the accusations, Governor Bose issued a statement on Thursday prohibiting the entry of police and Minister of State for Finance Chandrima Bhattacharya into Raj Bhavan premises in Kolkata, Darjeeling, and Barrackpore. The ban was justified as a measure against defamation and alleged anti-constitutional remarks made in the media.

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has strongly condemned Governor Bose over the molestation allegations. She emphasized that someone facing such accusations has no right to comment on sensitive issues like the Sandeshkhali incident. Banerjee questioned the silence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the matter, especially given his presence in the state.

Addressing reporters on Friday, Banerjee expressed deep concern over the alleged misconduct, highlighting the gravity of the situation and her disappointment with the Governor’s actions.
