Kolkata, June 27 : Sustaining ligament injuries after her helicopter had to make an emergency landing in north West Bengal on Tuesday, Chief Minister Mamta Banerjee refused admission to a hospital on her return to Kolkata.

Refusing the doctors who asked her to get treated in hospital, she said that she prefers being treated at her residence only.

Sources close to her said that the injuries are so minor there is no concern of worry.

“Because of her position as a Chief Minister, the doctors of the said state-run hospital did not want to take a risk and insisted her to get admitted. But she refused,” said a member of the state cabinet.

The doctors have reportedly advised a bed rest for her for at least seven days.

After the emergency landing, the Chief Minister was escorted back to Bagdogra airport from where she flew back to Kolkata. On arrival at Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose International Airport here, she was taken to the S.S.K.M. Medical College & Hospital for a thorough check-up.

Sources said that although the injuries on her leg and waist are extremely minor, the doctors are not willing to take any risk and hence, conducted a thorough medical check-up.

Sources also said that in all probability, Banerjee refused admission because of her schedule related to campaign for the forthcoming panchayat polls.
