Man hacked to death in North 24-Parganas
Kolkata: A youth identified as Asif Gazi (35) was hacked to death by a woman on Tuesday morning at Bashirhat in North 24-Parganas.
The woman and her two associates were reportedly beaten up by local residents before they were handed over to the police.
According to sources, the woman identified as Maruva Bibi lives at Matia in Bashirhat. Her husband Azizul Dafadar, who is a cook, lived in Kolkata. Bibi claimed that Gazi was a Bangladeshi resident and he worked in a local bheri.
She said he frequently disturbed her as he knew that her husband lived in Kolkata most of the time. She further said Gazi told her to leave her husband and get intimate with him.
Dafadar's mother claimed that her son and daughter-in-law used to reside in a house near her home.
When Dafadar used to leave home for work, Gazi used to visit her with an intention to have physical relationship with her.
On Tuesday morning, Bibi along with Dafadar and one of his friend arrived at Kholapota More in Bashirhat on a bike where Gazi was having tea at a roadside tea stall.
Bibi went to Gazi and started interacting with him. After a few minutes, she allegedly started slapping him. When Gazi tried to defend, Bibi took out a knife and started stabbing him.
Local residents rushed to stop Bibi from attacking Gazi and managed to nab all three of them and snatch the knife. Gazi was declared brought dead after he was rushed to a local hospital.
Bibi and her two associates were manhandled by the local residents.
The trio was assaulted in front of the police. Later, three of them were arrested. It is suspected that Bibi stabbed Gazi as he harassed her. Cops are trying to find if there is some other angle in the case.
