West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee on Monday evening visited a Kolkata police station and forced the release of two of her party workers.

The two Trinamool Congress members had been arrested for rioting, arson and ransacking the Bhowanipore police station.

Reportedly, the police took action after the Trinamool men, along with a mob of 300, clashed with policemen who had asked them not to burst high-decibel crackers late in the evening outside a cancer institute and a children's hospital.
