Mamata Banerjee’s lawyer had asked Judge Kaushik Chanda to withdraw from the hearing of the case due to differences of interest. This is behind the criticism from the High Court. Judge Kaushik Chanda said he was withdrawing from hearing the case after criticizing Mamata Banerjee.
Previously, the Calcutta High Court had written to the Chief Justice requesting the transfer of Mamata’s case to another court, alleging that Judge Kaushik Chanda had ties to the BJP. It was June 16. The letter said that the judge was likely to make favorable decisions against the defendant, as he was associated with the BJP.
