Rare Sight! Three Kolkata Mayors In Jail

- Advertisement -

Kolkata: May 17, 2021, will be forever be remembered in the history of Kolkata. The city saw a rare scene on Monday when three of its mayors — Firhad Hakim (present), Sovan Chatterjee (former) and Subrata Mukherjee (former) — were arrested for accepting bribe in the Narada bribery case.

All four, along with other leaders and top cop, were seen accepting cash from unidentified individuals in video footage that sparked a nationwide controversy back in 2016.

The four, including another TMC MLA Madan Mitra, were arrested at the CBI headquarters here in Nizam Palace. Since the introduction of the Calcutta Municipal Act in 1960, such a controversial day is unheard of in the history of the Kolkata Municipal Corporation.

Hakim is the 39th Mayor of the Kolkata Municipal Corporation since December 3, 2018. He was preceded by Sovan Chatterjee, who was also arrested on Monday.

Chatterjee was the 38th Mayor of the KMC. The leader resigned from Trinamool Congress to join BJP after a tiff with party supremo Mamata Banerjee. However, he also quit BJP after not getting a ticket for the recently-concluded West Bengal Assembly Elections.

Subrata Mukherjee was the 36th Mayor of Kolkata and he was in the chair for five years from 2000 to 2005.
