Two arrested over Ghatshila girl's death
Kolkata: Police have arrested two youth in connection with the mysterious death of an air-hostess trainee whose body was identified by her family members on Wednesday.
The victim , Susmita Roy (20) had come to the city from Ghatshila in Jharkhand on December 6 for taking air-hostess training after she enrolled herself into the course at a private company in Park Street. She started living as a paying guest on Iswar Ganguly Street in Kalighat from where she went missing on December 11.
Her family members came down to the city and lodged a complaint with the police, alleging that she might have been murdered. In the course of the investigation, police came to know that the victim had been engaged in a triangular love relationship, which might have prompted her to commit suicide.
After examining the mobile phone of the victim, police came to know that she used to video chat with her friends. Police came to know the names of the two youth after going through her mobile phone. After prolonged interrogation, police have arrested the duo.
Police came to know that the two accused had came to the city from Ghatshila a day before she went missing. They also came to know that before leaving her room, the victim had talked to one of the youth on her mobile phone.
Her roommates told the police that she was crying after talking on the phone. She later left the room and did not return home.
Police interrogated the two - Vivek and Gurdeep, together at the police station. They came to know that the victim had developed a relationship with Vivek around 2 years ago when both used to study in a private school in Ghatshila. She became acquainted with Gurdeep through a social networking site.
Police are interrogating the owner of the paying guest room and also the victim's roommates in this connection. They are yet to ascertain if she had committed suicide or if there was foul play behind her death.
Her body was found from the Hooghly river on December 18 and there were apparently no injury marks on her body.
