Kalyani, Dec. 9: A young woman studying law in a Kalyani based private law college was shot dead last night by unidentified assailants in the town.

A patrolling van of the Kalyani police found the bullet ridden body of the victim, identified as Moumita Biswas (22) lying in a pool of blood at about 9.30pm near PHE’s water treatment plant on the Kalyani Expressway.

The victim was rushed to Jawaharlal Nehru Memorial hospital in the town where she was declared brought dead.

A doctor at the hospital said that the girl was apparently shot once on her forehead and had possibly died on the spot. The body was sent for autopsy.

The deceased girl was a first semester LLB student of Kalyani based Snehangshu Kanta Acharya Institute of Law, located at the Kalyani University campus and a resident of Patulia in Khardah.

Her father Biman Biswas is a constable who is presently attached to Khardah police station.

Family sources claimed that the girl had got married during November last year to a youth of her choice, a garment trader in Barrackpur’s Nilganjue, but separated early this year.

The girl who used to attend college from her Khardah based home since she got admitted to the law college during June this year, remained untraceable since she last talked to her mother over phone late in the afternoon from Kalyani until police recovered her body.

The girl was on study leave and went to Kalyani to meet a friend for study purpose.

The Kalyani police has initiated a murder case on the basis of a complaint lodged by the victim’s father Biman Biswas, who has accused the girl’s estranged husband Nikhil Sen suspecting his role behind the murder.

The sleuths have detained Nikhil for interrogation as well as a Kalyani based youth (Basudeb Ghosh), who is an employee of a private engineering college with whom the girl allegedly developed an affair recently.

Kalyani’s Sub divisional police officer Koustabhaditya Achariya said: “We have detained two youths for interrogation. We have also talked to the parents of the deceased girl. Preliminary findings suggest that the murder is fallout of an extra marital affair”.

Professor Tanmay Sen, teacher in charge of Snehangshu Kanta Acharya Institute of Law express shock over the incident.

“I am shocked to learn the unfortunate demise of the girl. She was a nice student and scheduled to appear in the first semester examination slated for December 21. She was asked to collect her admit card on December 12. But, we have no idea of any if she was undergoing any personal problem in her life”.

The students of the college would organize a condolence meeting in her memory tomorrow.

On Thursday Moumita left home for Kalyani to meet a friend in the morning. Late in the afternoon she told her mother that she would be returning soon. However, her phone went switched off later.

An investigating officer said: “It is not clear how she reached the deserted place near the water plant late so night on the expressway where she was found dead”

Meanwhile, Moumita’s father Biman and her uncle Subimal Biswas have accused her estranged husband Nikhil for the murder.

“We strongly believe that Nikhil and his family members have killed Moumita. Nikhil had eloped with my daughter and spoiled her life. Now he eliminated her permanently”, Bimal said.

According to local sources, Moumita, a former student of Barrackpur girls’ high school got married to Nilganjue’s Nikhil Sen, a automobile spare parts shop owner, following a courtship on November 18 last year. However, trouble broke out between Nikhil and Moumita soon. Eventually Moumita left in laws’ house during May this year.

A family friend of the victim said: “Moumita’s parents was against the marriage and provoked her to go against her husband. Her father literally brainwashed her and got the couple separated. Eventually, the girl developed a number of affairs with many youngmen. This developed a fresh conjugal problem leading to suspicion despite Moumita and Nikhil met often outside home. She had even earlier tried to commit suicide. Nikhil later persuaded her to return, but Moumita refused and got admitted to the LLB course. This further irked Nikhil”.

A classmate of Moumita said: “She was fun loving but sometimes lost in sheer somberness. She had even recently posted some melancholic notes on own life that clearly depicts the pain she was suffering due to turbulent personal life”.
