Jadavpur University professor arrested for spreading ‘anti-Mamata’ cartoons #FOE, granted bail


CARTOON SAYS

 In Satyajit Ray’s movie “Sonar kella”, Mukul is a kid that seem to have memories of a “golden fort” from his past life. His doctor (psychiatrist) takes him to a trip to Rajasthan to see if the fort exists. An evil doctor, wanting to make fortune off the supposed golden fort’s treasures, tries to kill Mukul’s doctor and take his place. This are excerpts from dialogue between the evil doctor (Mamta) and Mukul (Mukul) from the movie. The original good doctor represents Trivedi.

Evil doctor (after hypnotizing Mukul).: Can you see the golden fort, Mukul?
Mukul (about his original doctor, after the evil doctor portrays the good doctor as the bad one): That’s a bad person!
Evil doctor (after pushing the good doctor off a cliff): Bad person vanish!

PTI- Professor Mahapatra of Jadavpur university, who was arrested for allegedly circulating anti-Mamata’s caricature on the Internet, was granted bail by Alipore court. Police arrested him last night for violating cyber laws.

He is a Chemistry Professor in the Jadavpur University. West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Friday said that the professor was arrested for his wrongdoings.

On Thursday night, he was assaulted by the Trinamool-Congress(TMC) leaders for circulating the cartoons.

Kolkata, ibnlive april 13, 2012 : A Jadavpur University professor was arrested on Friday morning for allegedly spreading “anti-Mamata Banerjee” cartoons on the Internet. Ambikesh Mahapatra, a teacher with the Chemistry Department of the University, was picked up on Thursday night by the police for allegedly forwarding cartoons of Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee.

The cartoon based on Satyajit Ray‘s movie Sonar Kella, allegedly show Mamata and Railways Minister Mukul Roy discussing how to get rid of party MP Dinesh Trivedi.

Mahapatra has been booked for defaming Mamata. Section 66 of the Information Technology Act, 2000 and Section 500 of the Indian Penal Code (punishment for defamation) have been slapped on the professor, who was arrested on charges of forwarding “derogatory images” of the West Bengal Chief Minister to nearly 65 recipients and mocking her government policies.

Trinamool workers allegedly raided Mahapatra’s residence at New Garia in the southern fringes of Kolkata before the police picked him up. They also allegedly manhandled the professor.

Even though Mahapatra was picked up on Thursday night the police showed his arrest only on Friday morning after he had been forced to spend the night at East Jadavpur Police Station. The professor will now be produced in the Alipore court.

Sources say it is quite an unprecedented incident and point out that Mamata is becoming increasingly intolerant to any incident that shows her in bad light, even if may be innocuous.
