The daughter of Lok Sabha Speaker Somnath Chatterjee, Anusila Basu, along with other female members of her cultural troupe, was heckled at by unidentified persons.

She was on board the Malda-Howrah Intercity Express when the incident happened on Monday morning.

According to sources, Basu and her troupe were returning to Kolkata from Bolpur when some youngsters entered the first class compartment and started heckling them and asked them to vacate their seats.

Basu then called her father, who was at Bolpur over the mobile phone from the train compartment.

The youth apologised for their behaviour, sources said adding Basu let them to.
