When Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee spoke to mediapersons at SSKM Hospital after making a surprise entry,she offered to provide all possible help to slain SFI member Sudipto Guptas family. I have heard Sudipto is survived by his father and his sister. Sudiptos father is alone and the government is ready to help and pay compensation if they want, Mamata said.
Her words angered an inconsolable Pranab Kumar Gupta,the 63-year-old father of Sudipto,who rejected the offer and said he would fight till he gets justice.
You (Mamata Banerjee) should not tempt me with money. Im not a beggar. I wont accept anything against my sons life, he told mediapersons.
My son was beaten to death. Is this justice? I was a central government employee,and I get pension. I cannot accept any money. It is against my principle. She (Mamata Banerjee) can offer me money,but can she return my son? he asked. I want justice and arrest of the police officer who beat my son to death, he added.
