Kolkata: Mystery over the death of the class 12 student Aabesh DasGupta intensifies on Sunday.
Several friends of Aabesh were interrogated throughout Sunday morning by the investigators. They have said that it was an accident where Aabesh fell on broken pieces of bottles. This injury has led him to his death. But the investigators refuse to accept such a tag to this mystery. They believe that injury made externally by someone can only lead to such a turn of events.
The investigators are looking into the CCTV footages and examining the statements given by the security guards. The police have also registered a murder case against unknown assailants on the basis of the accusations made by Aabesh’s mother.
Aabesh’s mother, Rimjhim DasGupta rubbished the claims by her son’s friends that it was an accident. She said that it was a cold-blooded murder. She said that if all the friends who were present in the party are interrogated, then the real truth would be out. Aabesh’s family had already submitted a letter to the Balluguange Police Station requesting for post-mortem in the presence of a magistrate. She even requested the parents of her son’s friends to co-oeperate in the investigation. The police has given permission to carry out a videography of the post-mortem of Aabesh’s body.
On Saturday. the 17-year-old boy was stabbed to death during a birthday party of noted author Amit Chaudhuri’s daughter at their residence in a posh Kolkata locality Saturday, police said.
