West Bengal Advocate General resigns abruptly


Tribune News Service

New Delhi, September 14

Citing personal reasons, West Bengal Advocate General (AG) Kishore Datta put in his papers abruptly on Tuesday.

He has been replaced by senior advocate of Calcutta High Court Gopal Mukherjee. Now, Mukherjee will represent the state government in various high-profile cases in the Calcutta HC, such as the post poll violence cases, Narada sting video case involving heavyweight Trinamool Congress politicians, the case over making Mukul Roy chairman of the PAC and so on.

The job of Advocate General is turning out to be an extremely slippery one for incumbents with four AGs stepping down from the office, one after another, midway through their terms.
