Actor-turned-BJP MP Roopa Ganguly’s son has been arrested here for allegedly ramming his car into the wall of an upscale south Kolkata club. Akash Mukherjee (21) was taken into custody following the incident around 9.15 pm on Thursday, a senior police official said.
“We have arrested him for rash driving and damaging properties. No casualty was reported in the accident. His blood sample has been collected to check if it was a case of drunk driving, while the car will be sent for a forensic test.”
Mukherjee will be produced at Alipore court later today.
Eyewitnesses say that many people had a harrowing experience after the car was at great speed.
The car crashed into the boundary wall of Royal Calcutta Golf Club (RCGC) in the city’s Golf Green area, breaking a portion of wall, as the drive was trapped in. Mukherjee, however, came out of the black sedan unscathed with the help of his father, who rushed to the spot after the commotion.
