The mystery of the mother-son murder case in Kolkata, West Bengal India is being solved within a week. Six days after the horrific murder of Sushmita Mondal and her 13-year-old son Tamajit, two of her cousins were on Sunday arrested for allegedly killing the duo, Kolkata police said.
The Joint Commissioner of Police, Crime Branch -Murlidhar Sharma said the main accused Sanjay Das had confessed to the murder during cross-examination on Saturday night. The detainees will be taken to court on Monday.
According to police sources, Sanjay and Sandeep Das, residents of Shampur Ghoshpara in Maheshtala police station area in Kolkata are the cousin brothers of Sushmita Mandal.
Investigators said they had been thinking of Sanjay’s role since the starting of the investigation. He was later arrested from his home on Saturday night. The interrogation continued in Lalbazar, Kolkata Police Headquarters till Saturday midnight and Sanjay confessed to the murder at around 2am.
What was the motive of the murder and how they did it? Sanjay, who was arrested by the police, said that he had been suffering from financial problems for some time. Lots were borrowed. There was no way he could solve the problem. Meanwhile, his cousin sister Sushmita’s financial condition was much better and she likes to buy gold jewelries.
Prime facie evidence and information gathered from the interrogation suggests that they killed them because of money,” Joint Commissioner of Police, Crime, Murlidhar Sharma said. “They thought that Sushmita Mondal, who had the habit of accumulating gold, might have a huge amount of jewellery in her house. They killed her for that. The son was murdered as he – doing online classes at that time – became witness to the murder.”
It is learned that on that day (Monday, September 6 at around 12:30 pm), Sanjay and Sandeep went to their cousin sister Sushmita’s house. Because, they knew that Sushmita Devi’s husband will not be at home at that time. Susmita was naturally happy to see her cousin brothers. At that time his son Tamojit was doing online class in the next room. Sushmita Devi also closed the door of the next room so that her son’s online class would not be harmed due to their chit-chats . On that day, Sanjay and Sandip asked for money and she, however, refused to give more. Then when she went to make tea for them, Sanjay slit her throat and then to be sure, he started stabbing her. The son, who was doing his online class, came out of his room and saw the murder. The two brothers then killed him also,” the police said.
Again the Kolkata Police done wonder as witin 06 days, they are able to solve the mystery of duo murder.
