Gopal Chandra 'Patha' Mukherjee or Mukhopadhyay (1913-2005) was a goonda or gang leader in Calcutta and involved in the Great Calcutta Killings which so disfigured the city at Partition. I talked to him in Calcutta on 25 April 1997 in what he said was his first broadcast interview. My colleague Nazes Afroz translated to and from Bengali.
Mukherjee, a Hindu, talked openly about his role in street violence at the time of Partition and was proud of refusing to surrender any weapons to Gandhi. He explained that his nickname of 'Patha', goat, came from the family meat shop on College Street.
I wrote a newspaper article back in 1997 based on my interviews with Mukherjee and others who lived through the Great Calcutta Killings of 1946 - it's available on the web. My interview with Mukherjee was cited in an article about Direct Action Day in Calcutta posted in 2015 - here's the link
There's an entry on him in Suranjan Das and Jayanata K. Ray, The Goondas: towards a reconstruction of the Calcutta underworld (Calcutta, 1996), which says of him: 'Gopal was 5 feet 4 inches in height, wore long hairs like ladies, sported a moustache and long beards. He was a leader of leaders in the underworld. Gopal organised a big Resistance Group during the communal riot of 1946. Subsequently, during the 1950s, he and his underlings committed a large number of crimes, including dacoities. ...'
