Kolkata: BJP MP Roopa Ganguly’s son arrested for rash driving

BJP MP Roopa Ganguly’s son, Akash Mukhopadhyay has been arrested for rash driving after he rammed his car into the wall of an upscale south Kolkata club, the police said. 

The incident occurred late on Thursday night when Akash while taking a turn, rammed his black sedan into the wall of Royal Calcutta Golf Club in the posh Golf Garden area, near the BJP MP’s south Kolkata house.

According to the sources, many people had a narrow escape when the car slammed into the wall at breakneck speed.

Akash came out of the car with minor injuries with the help of his father, who had rushed out of their apartment on hearing the commotion.

A medical test will be conducted to ascertain whether he was drunk when he rammed his car late last night, police said.

Meanwhile, in a tweet, Roopa Ganguly said the law should take its own course.

“My son has met with an accident near MY RESIDENCE. I called police to take care of it with all legal implications. No favours/politics please. I love my son and will take care of him but law should take its own course. Neither do I do wrong, nor do I tolerate it. I am not up for sale,” Ganguly said in a tweet tagging Prime Minister Modi.
