"These two are behind sending me such a malicious mail which denigrates the chief minister. I hereby register complaint against them," the professor said in his complaint.

The development comes days after Jadavpur University professor A Mahapatra was jailed on the charge of sending cartoon criticising Banerjee and her party colleague Mukul Roy.
