Jiaganj triple murder: Cops recover hand-written note

Kolkata: In the triple murder case of Jiaganj in Murshidabad, the police have found several clues including a handwritten note. After its recovery, it is suspected that the relation between husband and wife had turned bitter in the past few years. The police also came to know about another person who is the main cause of this tension between the couple.

According to sources, on Tuesday, bodies of Bandhu Prakash Pal (40), his wife Beauty Pal (30) and their son Angan Pal (5) were found inside their home. Local milk vendor Rajib Das and his friend were the first to spot the bodies at Prakash's Lebubagan residence in Jiaganj.

Das informed the police that when he arrived, the main door was not locked. He pushed the door open and went inside. After getting inside, Das found Prakash lying in a pool of blood. He also saw a man wearing a black pant and black shirt escaping from the house. Das chased the person but failed to nab him. Hearing the screams, the neighbours arrived at the spot and saw Beauty and Angan lying in a pool of blood in another room.

The police found a note which is suspected to have been written by Beauty. In it there is a mention of the couple's strained relationship. The police are scrutinising the mobile phones of Prakash and Beauty to find clues which may lead to the culprit's arrest. Investigating officials are suspecting that the murderer was close to the Pal family and knew everything about them.

On Thursday, Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar called the incident "gruesome" and expressed shock. In a press statement issued by the Raj Bhavan, it has been mentioned that the Governor has expressed his unhappiness that there has been no police action yet and no reaction from the state functionaries over such a serious issue. It was also mentioned in the statement that this is reflective of intolerance and worrisome law and order situation.

Reacting to the Governor's statement, state Parliamentary Affairs minister Partha Chatterjee stated: "Governor is a constitutional post. He should keep this in mind and not deliver motivated comments. He is unable to perhaps see the festivities being conducted so peacefully in the state. I would request him not to make any politically-motivated comments."

Meanwhile, the National Commission for Women (NCW) also raised concern about the incident.

NCW Chairperson Rekha Sharma stated that the Commission will issue letters to the Chief Minister and Director General of Police regarding the incident.
