Six of eight-member TMC delegation leave Assam after overnight detention
Two others -- MPs Mamatabala Thakur and Arpita Ghosh -- would leave the state later in the day, Cachar district Deputy Commissioner S Lakshmanan said.
"We are going back. The police have not allowed us to go out. We requested them several times but they refused. We spent the night in three rooms at the airport," Rajya Sabha MP Sukhendu Sekhar Roy, who was among those detained, said.
After they landed at the airport yesterday afternoon, they were stopped and taken under preventive detention.
Banerjee had accused the BJP of imposing "super emergency" in the country.
