BJP Rajya Sabha MP Roopa Ganguly's son Akash Mukherjee was arrested by Kolkata Police for reckless driving after he rammed a wall of an upscale Kolkata club with his car on Thursday night. 

The incident took place around 9 PM on Thursday. Locals claimed that many people had a narrow escape as the four-wheeler a black sedan was being driven at a breakneck speed. The car crashed into the boundary wall of Royal Calcutta Golf Club (RCGC) in the city's Golf Green area, breaking a portion of it.  

Initially it was suspected that Akash may have been driving under influence of alcohol, that too on Independence Day, which is a dry day across the country. However, medical reports haven't found any proof that Akash was drunk when the accident took place. Akash received minor injuries in the accident though the car got completely damaged. 

In a tweet, Ganguly said on Thursday that law should take its own course.

"My son has met with an accident near MY RESIDENCE. I called police to tke care of it with all legal implications... No favours/ politics plz. I love my son & will tk cr of him BUT, LAW SHOULD TAKE ITS OWN COURSE (sic)," she said.

Tagging Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the tweet, the Rajya Sabha member said in Hindi, "I don't commit any wrong, neither do I tolerate one. I am not up for sale."

Akash's father and Roopa Ganguly's husband, Dhruva Mukherjee has promised to pay for the wall which got damaged in the accident.
