Mamata Banerjee, Derek land in legal soup over morphed picture


Kolkata, April 25: West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee and TMC spokesperson Derek O'Brien have landed up in a legal soup over the usage of morphed picture of the Home Minister Rajnath Singh by the party.

The TMC, following the press conference by Derek O'Brien, posted 6 pictures and 2 videos on their website, showing Rajnath Singh sharing sweets with CPI(I)M leader Prakash Karat. Whereas, the original picture had Rajnath Singh sharing the sweets with Narendra Modi.


Although the party removed the photos after controversy erupted, the damage had already been done.

BJP state spokesperson Prakash Majumdar along with other leaders met with the Joint Commissioner (Crime) of Kolkata Police and lodged a complaint againt Derek O'Brien, Subrata Bakshi and Mamata Banerjee.

Meanwhile, Karat filed a case against O'Brien with Mandir Marg police station. In his complaint, he said, "He (O'Brien) has used morphed picture in his press conference and it has also been put on website of Trinamool Congress and this is being widely shown on the (news) channels also. So, it is politically defamatory and got the party (CPI-M) and myself into disrepute among people. So, action should be taken."
