The judge at Bidhannagar court also rejected a bail plea moved by the defence counsel.

Majumdar was arrested on Saturday after seven hours of intense grilling at the Bidhannagar North police station following a complaint by Arup Ratan Roy.

However, the BJP leader lashed out at the Roy in the court premises, saying he was not a candidate at the TET examination.

"Complainant himself is not an examinee of TT. This complaint is based on lies. The entire thing is a conspiracy," he said.
