Six male and one female student have been arrested by Kolkata Police for trying to deface the statue of Dr Syama Prasad Mookerjee and legal action has been initiated.

The bust of Jana Sangha leader was damaged and blackened in South Kolkata earlier today. Members of an ultra-Left group ‘RADICAL’, have been arrested in this connection. As per reports, the accused used a hammer and a chisel to damage parts of the statue and then blackened it, while raising slogans against the razing of Lenin’s statue in Tripura.
