2 more detained in Jiaganj triple murder case

Kolkata: In connection with the triple murder at Jiaganj in Murshidabad, the police have detained two persons who are suspected to have been involved in the incident.

On Tuesday, bodies of Bandhu Prakash Pal (40), his wife Beauty Pal (30) and their son Angan Pal (5) were found inside their home.

According to sources, during the probe, the police scrutinised the call details of Bandhu Prakash and his wife Beauty. While doing so, police identified a number in Beauty's call details which belongs to a person identified as Souvik Banik.

The cops traced his address from his mobile service provider and raided a house in search of Banik at Suri in Birbhum on Friday night. During the raid, it was learnt that the suspect was living there on rent. During the past four days, local residents had noticed that one of his legs was bandaged and his activities had raised suspicion.

During the raid, the police barged into the house and seized several documents, including the Aadhar card of the suspect. From the documents, police came to know that Banik hailed from Rampurhat, Birbhum. They are trying to be sure if Banik had only a business relation with Bandhu Prakash or he had developed any personal relation with Beauty.

On Saturday morning, the police conducted a raid at Banik's residence and detained him. Later another suspect, identified as Swapan Behra, was also detained from which Bandhu Prakash had borrowed Rs 6 lakh.

Following this, Bandhu Prakash reportedly gave the money to Banik. It may be mentioned that despite being a school teacher, Bandhu Prakash was doing a business of cosmetics jointly with Behra. Police are also questioning Bandhu Prakash's father Amar Pal to find out if any property dispute was there within the family.

Meanwhile on Saturday, a team from the state Criminal Investigation Department (CID) along with their forensic experts went to the murder spot. Forensic experts have collected several samples. Special Superintendent of CID Indra Chakraborty on Saturday said: "Some samples have been collected. Those will be examined."

Meanwhile, it was found that a sharp weapon which was found inside Bandhu Prakash's house was not the murder weapon. During the probe, the police found a T-shirt inside a burial ground which is suspected to be the culprit's. CID officials are also interrogating the detained duo.
