Kolkata (June 28,2023) : The Kolkata home of legendary singer Sandhya Mukherjee was demolished by a real estate promoter on Wednesday, June 28, 2023. The demolition took place despite protests from Mukherjee's family and fans. The promoter, who has not been identified, claimed that he had the legal right to demolish the house as it was built on land that he owned. However, Mukherjee's family said that they had been living in the house for decades and had never been given any notice of eviction.

The demolition sparked outrage in Kolkata, with many people calling it a disrespectful act against a national icon. Mukherjee, who is known as the "Queen of Melody," is one of the most popular singers in India. She has won numerous awards, including the Padma Bhushan, India's third-highest civilian award.

The demolition of Mukherjee's home has raised questions about the rights of tenants in Kolkata. Many people believe that the law is too heavily weighted in favor of landlords, and that tenants are often at the mercy of unscrupulous developers. The case of Mukherjee's home is likely to be a test case for the future of tenant rights in Kolkata. If the promoter is allowed to get away with this demolition, it could set a dangerous precedent.
