Kolkata: Chaos erupted over the recovery of a body from the Kudghat canal on Sunday morning. The deceased is yet to be identified. The locals first noticed the body and informed the police. The police rushed to the area and recovered the body.
According to the police, there are several injury marks in the body. After primary inspection, it is being suspected that the person was murdered. However, it is yet to be ascertained that who killed him and how was he murdered. The locals assumes that the person was murdered at some other place and thrown in the canal.
In May also, a 50-year-old person’s body was found in the same canal. As per the police, there is not much water left in the Kudghat canal. Hence, it is unlikely that one can die by drowning. The canal is also guarded in the surrounding, hence the possibility of slipping and falling in it is negligent.
The police is trying to investigate by using the footages from the CCTV cameras nearby.
