Kolkata, August 26

A woman’s body was found in a trolley bag in city’s Behala area on Sunday, following which her daughter and son-in-law were arrested for alleged involvement in her murder, police said.

The body of the 47-year-old woman was found with her throat slit and hands and legs tied with nylon ropes.

“The video of a neighbour, who recorded the duo dragging a trolley bag early in the morning, helped us identify the culprits,” the officer said.

He said the daughter and son-in-law of the woman were detained for questioning and confessed to their crime during interrogation.

Police also recovered the carcass of a pet cat from inside the victim’s flat which was locked from outside.

The deceased’s husband, a security guard, was not at home on Saturday night during which a quarrel had taken place, police said.

“A knife and clothes stained with blood have been found from beneath a bed in the deceased’s flat,” he said.

The officer said preliminary investigation had revealed that the deceased was against the lifestyle of the accused duo, which resulted in frequent quarrels. PTI
