Mamata alleges murder attempt after lorry hits convoy car

A lorry hit a car of Railway Minister Mamata Banerjee`s convoy Monday evening in West Bengal.

Kolkata: A lorry hit a car of Railway Minister Mamata Banerjee`s convoy Monday evening at Kolaghat Bridge in East Midnapore district when she was returning to the city after her meeting in Maoist-affected Lalgarh. The Trinamool Congress leader alleged that the lorry had targeted her car.

"When the convoy was crossing the congested Kolaghat Bridge in East Midnapore district, a lorry coming from the opposite direction seemed to lose control and hit a car of the convoy," East Midnapore District Magistrate Archana said over phone.

One of the convoy members - an Intelligence Bureau (IB) sleuth - was injured.

The driver of the lorry has been arrested.

Banerjee, however, alleged that the lorry had tried to hit her car. "It was a deliberate attempt to hit my car and cause an accident."
