The accused Anjan Bhattacharya had called up the Sub Divisional Officer (SDO) of Contai Sumit Gupta on Friday and introduced himself as Kartik Banerjee, the brother of Mamata Banerjee, the sources said.

Bhattacharya asked the SDO to arrange for a room for him in a guest house and also provide him a vehicle at Contai.

He arrived at the Contai SDO's office in a car and the SDO's office provided him accommodation.

After the driver of Bhattacharya gave inconsistent accounts the SDO office's became suspicious and the SDO informed the police about the matter.

The police then checked and found out that Mamata Banerjee's brother Kartick Banerjee was in Kolkata.

They arrested Anjan Bhattacharya and produced him before the Contai sub-divisional court which remanded Bhattacharya to five days police custody.

Police said they are interrogating Bhattacharya to know why he posed as Kartick Banerjee, brother of Mamata Banerjee.
