Kolkata: A mid aged man who lived alone on the second floor of an upscale Lake Gardens apartment was found dead in his room with expensive soft toys strewn all over.
Anirban Mirta (42) was lying motionless and frothing from his mouth. The Lake police said they were informed about the incident around 1.45 pm by the apartment guards who were alerted by the milkman.
According to the locals, the guards, caretaker and neighbours broke open the door as it was locked from inside. Cops recovered Mitra’s body and took him to MR Bangur Hospital, where they waited till the evening for his relatives to turn up. A forensic team is likely to visit the flat soon.
A suspicion also stems from the fact that the victim had recently met a promoter from Regent Park. They had been planning to promote a flat jointly on a plot owned by Mitra in south Kolkata. Cops are trying to ascertain the promoter’s identity.
