Air hostess death: Forensic team revisits apartment
Kolkata: Suspecting that the 23-year-old air hostess was murdered, forensic experts on Friday carried out necessary tests in the victim's flat.
The tests were carried out to ascertain that whether she fell from the window accidentally or she was pushed.
It may be recalled that the victim, Khongsit Clara Bansha Rai, who was originally a resident of Shillong, was found in front of her residence at Kestopur at around 4 am on Wednesday.
Investigation and post-mortem report have confirmed that she died after falling from height. Then the question that came up before the investigating officers was to ascertain that whether it happened accidentally or there was some foul play behind it.
The forensic experts have thrown a human size pillow from the window to earmark the spot where the body would have fallen if Clara was not pushed. The forensic experts found that the pillow fell on the road at a distance of 39 feet from the window in the third floor flat of Clara. But it was not the spot where the body was found. A police officer said that the distance between the spot where the pillow fell and where the body was found is around eight feet.
It deepened the suspicion that Clara didn't fall accidentally. Instead, police suspect that she was pushed from the window or else the body would not have fallen at the spot where it was found.
It may be mentioned that there were two friends of the victim present in her Baguiati flat when her body was found on the road in a pool of blood. The police had questioned them and recorded their
statements to know what they were doing when the incident took place.
The forensic experts have also collected a glass in which the victim had taken alcohol that night and also collected the dress that she was wearing when they celebrated the birthday of one of her friends in her flat.
