Bhangar Mahavidyalaya teacher Debjani Dey surrendered in court and was granted bail on Thursday in connection with a complaint lodged against her by college president Arabul Islam.
Police have charged Dey with defamation, criminal intimidation and wrongful restraint based on Arabul’s complaint, lodged days after she had filed an FIR against the former Trinamul MLA.
The additional chief judicial magistrate in the Baruipur court heard the case for a couple of minutes before granting bail against a bond of Rs 1,000 and a surety.
Dey had alleged that Arabul had on April 24 misbehaved with her in the staff room and she got hurt when a gesticulating hand of the leader hit a jug and sent it crashing into her chin. Arabul has been slapped with criminal intimidation, outrage of modesty, wrongful confinement, hurt and trespassing. He had surrendered in court on April 30 and got bail.
Dey said she was attending college under “tremendous” stress. “I was the victim of an attack but am being treated as an attacker,” she said.
