Kolkata, April 2 IANS | 6 months ago

Magician P.C. Sorcar Jr., BJP's candidate from West Bengal's Barasat, Wedneday got anticipatory bail after a police complaint was filed against him for making derogatory comments against Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.


Sorcar Wednesday surrendered before court and sought an anticipatory bail a day after the North 24-Parganas district magistate, who also doubles up as the district election officer, lodged a first imnformation report (FIR) against him following a directive from the Election Commission.

The court granted Sorcar bail against a bond of Rs.3,000.

Earlier, Sorcar was slapped with a show cause notice on the orders of the commission for his comments.

Last week, without naming the chief minister, Sorcar said while campaigning: "She says those who have raped, they are naughty boys. I ask her, if she is raped. What will she do?"

Sorcar also attacked his Trinamool opponent Kakoli Ghosh Dastidar, who is a gynaecologist, calling her insane.

"She says a lot of things. She is a gynecologist. So, she doesn't understand anything about men. I am a male. I am a psychologist. I hold a doctorate degree. I cure insane people. If she is insane, bring her to me, I will cure her."

Ghosh Dastidar has termed the comments "despicable".

Asked about his comments after bail, Sorcar said he had received an SMS from a rape victim's father that despite repeated pleas, no one was helping him. "My heart cries for such people.... But if I have done something wrong, I will rectify it."
