This is not the first time that Chatterjee has behaved like this. Last year, the Kalighat Police had started a case against a tenant who had thrown out his landlady - an elderly woman. The accused had forced the woman to hand over her house to him and had beaten her up. He had also snatched her necklace. “We arrested the tenant and produced him in court. But he did not get bail. During the third hearing, the court cancelled his bail petition. As soon as I came out of the court, Chatterjee started venting his anger on me,” said the investigating officer of the case.
According to the officer, in another case in 2012, Chatterjee made abusive remarks inside the courtroom when the police were opposing the bail of a woman who had adopted a child illegally.
When contacted, Chatterjee said, “All these allegations are baseless. If I did anything wrong inside the courtroom, then why did the police prosecutor not bring it to the notice of the court? Whatever I have said inside the courtroom was in the interest of my client.”
