Kolkata: His ordeal seems to head nowhere. Former West Bengal Chief Secretary Alapan Bandopadhyay whose stint as the top most bureaucrat in the state was mired in controversies towards the end, now allegedly faces risk to his life, as per a news report in India Today.
Bandopadhyay who is currently saddled as the chief advisor to CM Mamata Banerjee, has been sever a letter of death threat sent to his wife, Sonali Chakraborty who is also the Vice-chancellor of the University of Calcutta.
The letter read, “Madam, your husband will be killed and nobody can save the life of your husband.” Following up on it, a complaint has been lodged with the Kolkata Police.
The 1987 batch IAS officer reportedly ruffled feathers when he left a crucial meeting on a cyclone headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. It didn’t go down well with the Centre which called him on Central deputation a few days before his retirement. Bandopadhyay didn’t adhere to the Union government’s call and retired only to be appointed as the Chief Advisor.
Now, it remains to be seen how fast the cops nab the man or men behind this threat letter.
