After being kept in custody for about two hours, he was released late at night.
Regarding this, Mamta Banerjee wrote late night on micro blogging site X, today is a dark and black day for democracy. BJP’s hatred towards the people of West Bengal and their irresponsible conduct towards the rights of the poor has come to the fore. Democratic values also seem to be completely gone.
