Kolkata : A man has been arrested for sneaking into CM Mamata Banerjee's residence in south Kolkata’s Kalighat area; it has been learned that he was inside the building premises for a couple of hours before he got snapped by the security personnel of the CM.
According to reports, the man scaled a wall of Banerjee’s house at 34B Harish Chatterjee Street to enter around 1 am. He spent the night sitting in a corner of the building, hiding from everyone. In the morning, he was spotted by the security personnel and was later handed over to the police.
