CM Banerjee has alleged that she was attacked by “four-five men” and has suffered injuries in her left leg and shoulder.
“I was standing outside my car with the door open. I was praying from there on seeing a temple. Few people came around my car and pushed the door. The door hit my leg,” told Banerjee to the media persons.
