As per the plan, on Thursday night Shampa sedatives in Sujit's food. As a result, he became unconscious after a few minutes. Later, she called Pal and both of them strangulated Sujit using a pillow.
After the murder they placed his body on the bed and Pal left the house.
On Thursday morning Sujit was found dead. At that moment members of the Mondal family suspected that he had died due to cardiac arrest.

Immediately police arrested her and during interrogation she admitted to the crime. Later, police arrested Pal on Thursday. The duo were produced at the concerned court with prayer for police remand which was eventually granted. Sleuths may reconstruct the crime scene soon.
