Medha plans legal action against Bose

Special Correspondent

KOLKATA: Social activist Medha Patkar is contemplating legal action against Biman Bose, Chairman of the Left Front Committee, for his "false" remarks against her.

Ms. Patkar has taken exception to Mr. Bose's statement, made to the media on December 8, that she visited Sonachura, near Nandigram in West Bengal's East Medinipur district, on December 3 and held a meeting in a building where several outsiders had been converging over the past few days.

An associate of Ms. Patkar told The Hindu here on Thursday that a "lawyer's notice" would be sent to Mr. Bose unless he admitted that his statement was incorrect.

Mr. Bose, also secretary of the State Committee of the Communist Party of India (Marxist), told a local television channel over telephone that he had already apologised to Ms. Patkar.

Ms. Patkar and Sujato Bhadra of the Association for the Protection of Democratic Rights filed a petition at the Calcutta High Court against the State Government and the police for their alleged "illegal detention and arrest" on Wednesday.

Ms. Patkar then broke the fast she began on Wednesday evening against the "illegal arrests."
