Kolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Tuesday ordered a probe against “syndicate” members who allegedly threatened Trinamool MP and Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose's grand-nephew Sugata Bose. Sources said the CM has asked the commissioner of police and the state DGP to probe complaints against syndicate members from across the state.

On Monday, a group of youths reached Jadavpur MP Sugata’s ancestral house at 90 Sarat Bose Road in South Kolkata and allegedly threatened his mother Krishna Bose, a former MP. When she confronted them, the youths told her that the police will not act against them.

Sugata, who was present in the house at the time of the incident, called up Trinamool MP Subrata Bakshi and told him about the incident. The matter reached the Chief Minister’s Office and Mamata asked the police to crack down on the miscreants.

“The syndicate members threatened Krishna Bose and asked her not to purchase building material for repair work at her house,” said a senior police officer said. Six people have been arrested so far.

Bakshi refused to comment on the matter. “Nothing much happened. It is better you ask him (Sugata Bose).”

Despite repeated Sugata was not available for a comment. The Trinamool leader has raised his voice against syndicates several times in the past.

The opposition CPI (M) demanded strict action against those responsible. “If an MP is being treated by goons in such a manner, then imagine under what circumstances the real estate companies are operating in Bengal,” said CPI (M) MP Md Salim.

“Such illegal activities should immediately stop. If we want to see Bengal on global map, the government should take strict action,” he added.

State BJP General Secretary Sayantan Basu said, “Bengal should have a strict law to deal with the issue. The government needs to act.”
