Calcutta High Court dismisses contempt case against Mamata Banerjee

Kolkata: In some relief to West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, the Calcutta High Court on Tuesday dismissed a plea seeking contempt proceedings against her.

The judges, however, disapproved of Mamata's comments against the judiciary.

Advocate Bikash Ranjan Bhattacharya had then moved court pleading that suo moto contempt proceedings should be initiated against Mamata for her comments.
