Meghalaya Governor Tathagatha Roy, who is known for his controversial statements, claimed that people who raised ‘Jai Shri Ram’ slogan at West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s rally is likely to face attempt to murder charge under Section 307.

Roy said that he was booked under Section 307 because of a speech which the local MLA didn’t like. The Meghalaya Governor took to Twitter on May 31st, 2019 and wrote, “It is perfectly possible that the people who shouted ‘Jai Shri Ram’ wud be slapped with non-bailable attempt-to-murder (S.307 IPC) cases. I should know, it happened to ME in 2011! I was booked under 307 because I made a speech the local MLA didn’t like. Had to spend a night in JC.”

Enraged Banerjee recently chased a group of youth who were shouting ‘Jai Shri Ram’ in front of her convoy when it was passing through Naihati in the North 24 Parganas district. The Chief Minister also confronted the youth and labelled them as criminals.
