Trinomool-Congress MLA and West Bengal Medical Council Ex-president Charged with “Criminal Breach of Trust” (IPC Sec. 409) for Personal Use of Council Funds and for “Criminal Conspiracy” (IPC Sec. 102B) Facing 10-year Imprisonment

The Addl. Chief Judicial Magistrate (ACJM) in Bidhannagar, Kolkata has taken cognisance and charged Dr. Nirmal Maji, a sitting MLA from the ruling Trinamool-Congress party who was also the president of West Bengal Medical Council (WBMC) until a couple of months ago, and Mr. Manas Chakraborty, WBMC registrar who is also the “Returning Officer” in charge of the ongoing WBMC election, for criminal offences under Indian Penal Code (IPC) Section 409 and Section 120B in response to a complaint filed by PBT president Dr. Kunal Saha. The court has issued summons against Dr. Maji and Mr. Chakraborty and asked them to appear and surrender on 14th September, 2022 (see Order below). This unprecedented criminal case against the president and registrar of the state medical council was filed after it was revealed that Dr. Maji was using advocates paid by WBMC day after day to defend a “criminal defamation” case against Maji in which the WBMC was not a party or connected in any way. PBT issued a press release today and demanded for immediate suspension of Dr. Maji from the W.B. Assembly and also the numerous high-rank posts that he still holds in various sectors of the state government (see below)
