Kolkata Police on Thursday ruled out the murder theory in the Abesh Dasgupta death case and said the 17-year-old boy died due to injuries he met after falling from a small wall in the lawn of the Sunny Park residential complex on July 23.

According to Kolkata Police Joint Commissioner (Crime) Visal Garg, going by the CCTV footages at the Sunny Park complex, circumstantial evidences and statements of several witnesses including those present at the birthday celebration, security guards and other witnesses, sleuths were of the opinion that there was no “conspiracy” behind Abesh’s death.

Speaking to reporters, Garg said “There is no conspiracy behind Abesh’s death. It was not pre-planned and the boy died primarily because of the injuries he met after falling down from a small wall, which he tried to scale to take a short cut to the lawn from the parking lot of the Sunny Park complex where his other friends were present.”

CCTV footage of the place showed people were consuming liquor sitting in a scattered manner at the lawn of the complex, he said. Footage also showed Abesh holding a bottle in his left hand and walking in an imbalance manner on the ramp while coming out of the parking lot.
