“A few boys on a motorcycle without a helmet struck our taxi at the Exide junction and Jawaharlal Road crossing… Around 15 boys emerged from nowhere and dragged the driver out, began to beat him up. That’s when I began shouting, calling the police, and at the same time starting to take a video of the whole event,” she said. She stated that, despite repeated demands, officers from the closest Maidan Police Station originally did not come for assistance.
“Some Maidan Police Station officers reached the place. only to be pushed by the boys before they escaped,” said Sengupta, adding that about six kids on three bicycles followed the taxi near South Kolkata’s Lake Gardens region, where she dropped her colleague’s house.
“They stopped my vehicle, threw rocks and dragged me out and attempted to break my phone to remove the video. My colleague jumped out of fear and I began shouting to attract the attention of some locals there. I managed to call my father and sister home in the next lane when they fled,” said Sengupta.
The actor-model also claimed that officers at the nearby Charu Market Police Station refused to take any complaint and instead told her to contact the police station in Bhawanipore. “The policeman took my complaint after raising many questions but refused to take the driver’s complaint,”
