HC imposes penalty of Rs 5 lakh on West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee for painting judiciary in bad light

The Calcutta high court today imposed a penalty of Rs 5 lakh on West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee. The Court said it fined Ms Banerjee for painting the judiciary in a bad light. The amount paid in penalties by the West Bengal CM will be used for the families of lawyers affected by Covid-19.

MS Banerjee was seeking recusal of Justice Kaushik Chanda from her Nandigram election petition over the judge’s alleged links with the Bharatiya Janata Party. The application of the Trinamool Congress leader Supremo was rejected by Justice Chanda himself. He, however, decided to recuse himself from the case on his own personal discretion and released the case from his bench.
