Mamata responsible for student's death: Mrinal Sen

Kolkata, April 3 : Filmmaker Mrinal Sen Wednesday held West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee responsible for the death of a student activist allegedly due to police beating.

"Why did he die? Who is responsible for his death? The one who rules the state, under whom the police are, that is the chief minister is responsible for this death," Sen said.

Students Federation of India (SFI) activist Sudipto Gupta died Tuesday of a head injury in police custody after participating in a protest.

While police maintain that the activist died after he crashed into a lamp post while being taken to jail in a bus, the SFI allege that the activist was fatally beaten by police during its crackdown on the protestors.

"I would like to ask the chief minister how did he die? Why isn't there any control? She will have to answer. The loss of a young life is an unbearable pain," added Sen.

There has been outrage over the death of Gupta, with leaders cutting across political lines expressing their grief.
