On Monday afternoon, actress-MP Mimi Chakraborty was in for a shock when a taxi driver tried to harass her on her way back from the gym. Recalling the incident, the actress said, “It happened around 2pm. I was alone in my car and it was raining heavily. At first, I tried to ignore and asked my driver to speed up. But he followed my car and then, near the Gariahat bridge, he again started passing lewd comments and making obscene gestures. I thought I must protest, as I could feel he was drinking and driving. I realised this taxi driver was mentally not sound. So, I stopped my car and decided to teach him a lesson. But when he saw too many people starting to gather, he fled. Later, I lodged a complaint with Gariahat Police station and they nabbed him. He is under police custody now and will be produced at the court. Thanks to the Kolkata Police that they did what was needed. We all should protest otherwise these people will think they can get away with anything and everything.” A few days ago, actress-MP Mimi Chakraborty praised #KolkataBraveHeart Nilanjana Chatterjee for saving a girl on EM bypass.
Mimi recalls, even in 2016, while she was passing by Teghoria on VIP road, she saw two men in a car hit a man on a motorcycle. Her car soon caught up with the car. She found both the men were drunk. Mimi took down the number on the license plate and also took pictures of the two men. She helped the injured man and made sure the culprits were punished.
