Former Justice Roy contacted the Bidhannagar Commissionerate and informed the police about the matter in detail. The Commissionerate asked the New Town police station to take necessary action.
Policemen from the New Town station went to Roy’s house and noted down the description of the youths. Later, police detained a local youth Ansar Mollah in this connection. The motorbike in which the duo had come to Roy’s house was also seized.
Preliminary investigation revealed that both the accused youth were involved with the business of supplying building materials.
