His wife, former Trinamool MP Krishna Bose and his son, a former professor and sitting Trinamool MP Sugata Bose, were at home at that time.

Industrialists, builders, factory owners as well as common citizens, have for years been complaining about extortion by syndicates formed by youths for supplying materials for any form of construction across the state.

After arresting of six accused youth, the city police was looking for more suspects when Trinamool Congress MP Sugata Bose, the grand nephew of Netaji Subash Chandra Bose, on Monday alleged that some youth had threatened him and his former MP mother Krishna Bose of dire outcome if they did not cough off money for carrying out renovation at his ancestral home in south Kolkata.

"A minor fix started this morning because of some rain damage to first floor verandah (porch)". Following the incident, security has been beefed up at Bose's residence.

"They asked me who the contractor was and why we did not procure cement and other material from them". What position I hold in the party is absolutely of no significance here. "I only want to say what has happened in our house is not that important".

Bose said he lodged the complaint as he was concerned about the safety of his mother and wanted ordinary citizens not to suffer the same ordeal. Police claim, they indentified the miscreants from the CCTV footage from outside the house.

Reacting to the development, BJP leader and another Netaji family member Chandra Kumar Bose blamed chief minister Mamata Banerjee for the syndicate menace in the state. "I had raised the issue during last elections and look how it has come back to haunt the TMC itself", Bose said.
