Kabir apology, but to CM

Behrampore, Dec. 28: Trinamul minister Humayun Kabir today tendered an unconditional apology to “people and the chief minister” for abusing a construction firm manager over phone.

But the junior animal resource development minister denied he threatened to abduct the manager as alleged by him. “I had called up the manager and used some foul words. I apologise to people and the chief minister,” Kabir told reporters in Behrampore this afternoon.

He added: “But I will not apologise to manager Santu Sinha. He has lodged a false complaint against me.”

Sinha today lodged a complaint with Behrampore police against the alleged threat call. On December 22, he had lodged an FIR accusing Kabir and his aides of trying to “obstruct the laying down of a road” by his company.

“If you don’t withdraw the complaint (on December 22), I will pick you from Behrampore and fix you. No one’s father will be able to prevent that,” Sinha had quoted Kabir as telling him over the phone.
