Bengal to review security of ministers
Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has ordered a security review of all her Cabinet ministers, following an attempt on the life of state Food Minister Jyotipriyo Mullik on July 15.

Unidentified men in a speeding car tried to run Mullik over when he was out on his morning walk. Mullik suspects the attempt on his life was due to his vocal support to an ongoing crackdown on cross-border smuggling.

“The chief minister has asked Kolkata Police Commissioner Rajeev Kumar to look into the matter and review security protocol of all the ministers,” a senior official said.
