Sealdah Court grants DNA test permit in Tangra twin murder case
Kolkata: The Sealdah Court on Thursday granted permission to the city police to conduct DNA test on Lee Wan Sang, who has been accused of murdering his wife Mi Ha and his father Ka Sang. The incident took place at China Town under Tangra police station on August 23.
The incident had created a sensation in the locality after local people found the two bodies inside Lee's house. In the course of the investigation, the city police urged the court seeking permission to conduct DNA test on the accused. The senior officers of the city police believe that the test will help them crack the case.
During the investigation, police had found some portion of the nails of the accused inside the palm of the deceased woman. However, police failed to ascertain who the nail fragments belonged to.
Having found no option, the police sought DNA test of the accused, as the investigating officers did not get any substantial evidence against him.
Lee Ka Sang (80) and Hau Mi Ha (60) were found dead inside the house. After starting an investigation, police arrested Lee Wan in this connection.
Police suspect that the accused, who carried out the twin murders, might have been involved in an extra-marital relationship which deteriorated the relation between the couple. The couple used to get involved in frequent quarrels after the victim got to know about her husband's illicit relationship.
A scuffle had ensued between the victim and the accused on the day of the incident as well. During the scuffle, the accused hit his wife with a bucket in a fit of rage, resulting in serious injuries in her head. She fell down on the floor of the room after receiving several blows on her head.
The father of Lee Wan rushed to the spot and found the woman lying in a pool of blood. Lee did not even spare his elderly father, who demanded an explanation as to why he had hit his wife. The accused then hit his father with the same bucket in similar fashion.
