Kolkata, Oct 15 (PTI): The West Bengal government today denied the Trinamool Congress claim of a "conspiracy" to kill party chief Mamata Banerjee when a car trailed her convoy while she was returning home from a meeting at Salt Lake on Tuesday night.
"The complaint filed by the Trinamool Congress is not true," Home Secretary Ardhendu Sen said here. The police had earlier said that the car with a press sticker belonged to Bengali news channel, Chobbis Ghonta, which was seeking an interview with the TC chief.
TC general secretary Mukul Roy alleged yesterday that there was a "conspiracy to kill Mamata". Sen said that he had received a report on the incident from IGP (Law and Order) Surojit Kar Purokayastha and was expecting another from DIG (Presidency Range) S N Gupta tomorrow.
