She said the TMC leader had alleged that Ratna wanted to kill Baisakhi Banerjee — who she has accused him of having an affair with — and her daughter by hiring a supari killer. He had also alleged that Ratna wanted to kill him with a poisonous cake. He further claimed that Ratna had set up a company with another man without his knowledge.
