Legendary actor Mithun Chakraborty has landed in hot water after being accused of inciting post-poll violence in Bengal.
Peeping Moon reports that the violence erupted after Mamata Banerjee’s Trinamool Congress won the West Bengal Assembly polls in May.
The report states that Mithun allegedly used terms like, “Marbo ekhane lash porbe shoshane (Will hit you here and the body will land in the crematorium),” and, “ek chobole chabi (one snakebite and you will turn into a photograph),” during a rally on March 7.
Actor & BJP leader Mithun Chakraborty is being questioned virtually by Kolkata Police over his controversial speech during election campaigning for West Bengal polls. An FIR was registered in Maniktala for his speech.
