Kolkata Raj Bhavan female staff alleges molestation by Governor CV Ananda Bose, files FIR

| @indiablooms | 02 May 2024, 10:07 pm

Kolkata/IBNS: A female staff working with Kolkata's Raj Bhavan has levelled serious allegations of molestation against West Bengal Governor CV Ananda Bose on Thursday, media reports said.

She has also filed a complaint with Hare Street Police Station stating that she has been allegedly molested by the Governor twice.

However, with the Governor enjoying legal immunity provided by the Constitution of India, the police are looking into the complaint and the allegations but may not be able to take any action against him.

The incident comes ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's arrival at the Raj Bhavan for an overnight stay before he starts his election campaign in Bengal on Friday.

Meanwhile, reacting to the allegations, the Raj Bhavan has quoted the Governor as saying that the entire incident is a conspiracy to malign his image.

As per local television, the Governor in his press statement said the conspiracy was hatched to prevent him from raising his voice against the irregularities and corruption issues in Bengal including the Sandeshkhali incident.

However, he made it clear that nothing can stop him from standing up for justice.

The ruling Trinamool Congress wasted no time in cashing in on the issue amid their everlasting tussle with the Governor.

TMC MP Sagarika Ghose said molestation charges against the Bengal Governor "puts the prestige of the Raj Bhavan in Kolkata at stake".

"BIG. Bengal governor  CV Ananda Bose accused of molesting a woman. How utterly APPALLING and HORRIFYING. Ahead of @narendramodivisit to Kolkata who is supposed to stay overnight at Raj Bhavan, a woman has alleged that she was molested while she went to meet the Governor at Raj Bhavan today. The complainant has been taken to the Hare Street police station for filing a complaint.  The woman has accused the Governor of molesting her.  Shocking and disgraceful."

CV Ananda Bose is a 1977 batch (retired) IAS officer and he was appointed as the West Bengal Governor and has been serving as one since November 23, 2022.
