The Election Commission ruled out an attack on Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, saying it was an accident. The Commission, which held a meeting to discuss the issue after receiving a report on Friday, pointed out lapses on part of the Chief Minister’s security personnel.
On Wednesday, Ms Banerjee had said she was pushed by four or five people against her car and had the door shut on her. There was no police personnel around her at the time.
The next day, however, she made no reference to the attack, saying instead, “It is true that I was very badly hurt yesterday and that I have a foot injury, a bone injury and in the ligament and I had pain in my head and chest as a result of the injury””.
