‘Someone pushed from behind’: Kolkata police begins probe after Mamata Banerjee suffers head injury

Mamata Banerjee hospitalised after suffering head injury.

Kolkata: A day after West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee suffered a “major injury” to her forehead after a fall at her home, the Kolkata police on Friday launched an investigation into the incident.

The police have also tightened the security at the CM’s residence in Kolkata. An inquiry has been ordered by the Kolkata Police Commissioner Vinit Goel to find out if there has been a security lapse after the CM told the officer that someone “pushed her from behind”, Indian Express reported quoting sources.

On Thursday, Mamata suffered a “major injury” to her forehead after a fall at her home. The chief minister received stitches and was later discharged from the hospital. 

The chief minister was taken to her residence after necessary tests were conducted. Mamata’s nephew Abhishek Banerjee and other family members accompanied her.

The All India Trinamool Congress later shared photos of Mamata on a hospital bed with a deep cut in the middle of her forehead and blood on her face.
