Babul Supriyo pardons student after mom’s appeal | Kolkata News

KOLKATA: Hours after a cancer-stricken woman — with folded hands — requested that her son be spared, Union minister Babul Supriyo assured her that he won’t take any step against the youth who had allegedly attacked him on the Jadavpur University campus. Supriyo said he was hoping that the youth, Debanjan Ballav — who is not a student of the varsity — will learn his lesson from the entire episode and realize his mistake.
“Please don’t worry, aunty. I will not harm your son in any way. I just want that he takes lessons from his misdeed. I have not lodged any police complaint against anybody, nor did I allow anyone to do so. Shed your worries and get well soon. Take my pronaam,” Supriyo said in a tweet.
The development comes barely a day after Supriyo tweeted the photograph that showed a youth — Ballav — pulling his hair in JU on Thursday evening.
Ballav’s mother Rupali, who has had cancer for three years, made a tearful appeal to the media that her son be pardoned. Ballav, a second-year student of a north Kolkata college, is aligned with USDF. He deactivated his Facebook profile on Friday. But on Saturday, there was a new account in his name where he apologized about Thursday’s incident. “I am writing this message because I feel so guilty right now. Forgive me for the way I behaved,” the post read.
USDF, in a statement in the evening, said that this account is a fake one.
