Bharati, a management graduate from Harvard, had also served as a teacher at Calcutta Managament Institute before joining the West Bengal Police.
She had also served at war-torn Kosovo and Bosnia on an UN peace keeping mission for about a decade. Before that she made her mark in the CID’s women cell.
Bharti returned to Bengal from the UN mission in mid 2011 after Mamata Banerjee became the CM and was soon posted as SP of Midnapore (west) and Jhargram.
However, as there are rumours that she was close to former Trinamool MP Mukul Roy and that helped her to remain the SP for a long stint over five years.
Bharti was removed during the polls by the election commission due to her proximity to the ruling party and was also known to be close to the CM.
During the meetings chaired by chief minister Mamata Banerjee in Jhargram, Bharti used to address her as the ‘Mother of Jungalmahal’.
Paschim Medinipur’s Superintendent of Police (SP) Bharati Ghosh, who is known for her tussles with the West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee, resigned from her post on Thursday after she was transferred to less significant post.
While Ghosh tendered her resignation to West Bengal Director General of Police Surajit Kar Purakayasta on Thursday, her resignation is yet to be accepted. However, sources revealed that normally when an IPS resigns from his or her post, the resignation is accepted.
Ghosh reportedly felt insulted after being transferred to the post of the commanding officer of the West Bengal Armed Police (WBAP) the third battalion at Barrackpore in North 24 Parganas the district, which is considered a less significant post than the SP of Paschim Medinipur, which she has held since 2012.
Though the state government maintained the transfer was ‘routine’, the TMC insiders said that Ghosh was transferred after a section of the district TMC leaders alleged that she supported BJP during the recently-concluded Sabang by-election.
Once considered close to the West Bengal chief minister, relations between Ghosh and Mamata Banerjee had soured in the recent past. Sources revealed that she had grown close to the BJP after TMC co-founder Mukul Roy joined the saffron party in November.
Ghosh had once accused Sabang strongman Manas Bhunia of being involved in the murder of a student when he was a Congress leader. She was given the marching orders as soon as Bhunia’s wife Gitarani Bhunia won the Sabang by-election on December 24.
A management graduate of Harvard, Ghosh served as a teacher at the Calcutta Management Institute before joining West Bengal Police. She served in United Nations peacekeeping mission in Kosovo and Bosnia for a decade but returned to India after Mamata Banerjee came to power in 2011.
