Turning down West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s offer of help, the family of an SFI leader, who was allegedly beaten to death by the police while in custody, on Wednesday took exception to her remarks on the incident.
“You [Ms, Banerjee] should not tempt me with money … I am not a beggar. I will not accept anything,” said Pranab Kumar Gupta, father of Sudipta Gupta, leader of the Students Federation of India — student wing of the Communist Party of India (Marxist).
“Is this justice? … Can you bring my son back?” the inconsolable retired government employee asked here.
Earlier in the day, Ms Banerjee during her visit to the state-run SSKM Hospital in the city, where the body was kept, said the government was ready to offer all possible assistance to Sudipta’s family.
