According to a Hindustan Times report, the complainant had filed an fIR at the Maniktala police station in Kolkata. He had pointed out that Mithun used dialogues like “marbo ekhane lash porbe shoshane (Will hit you here and the body will land in the crematorium)” and “ek chobole chabi (one snake bite and you will turn into a photograph)” at a rally in Kolkata.
Mithun has been accused of promoting enmity between different groups. Whereas in his defense, the veteran actor had said that he had just uttered popular dialogues from his films during the rally. And he hasn’t committed any offence as claimed by the complainant.
The court has fixed the matter for hearing on June 18 giving time to the police to question Chakraborty.
