Nandigram case: Calcutta High Court reserves judgment

The Calcutta High Court after hearing the plea filed by Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee challenging Nandigram election results reserved the judgment.

A bench of Justice Kausik Chanda started hearing the case at 11 am.

The TMC supremo had filed a petition against her former protégé and BJP Leader of Opposition, Adhikari, in the Calcutta High Court challenging his win in the election from Nandigram and prayed to the court for declaring the election null and void.

Adhikari defeated Mamata from Nandigram by 1,956 votes.

After her defeat, the CM alleged that the Returning Officer of the Assembly seat had said that he was threatened against recounting of votes.
