Boy found dead after party at author Amit Chaudhuri’s house
Kolkata, July 24 (IANS) The police on Sunday registered a case of murder after the death of a teenager who was found with multiple injuries at the apartment complex of noted author Amit Chaudhuri where he had gone to attend a birthday party.
A grievously injured Abesh Dasgupta, a Class 12 student, was found in a pool of blood in the ground floor car park of the apartment complex in South Kolkata’s Ballygunge on Saturday.
He was later declared dead at a hospital. A blood-soaked neck of a broken bottle was found from the spot.
While police on Saturday registered a case of unnatural death, a murder case was initiated on Sunday following a complaint by the Dasgupta family.
Alleging cover-up attempts were being made, the mother of the boy demanded interrogation of all those who attended the birthday party.
“At the hospital, all the kids said they did not see anything, they all are saying they are unaware. How can this happen? It was a party; a murder happened and none of them know anything? How is that possible?”
“The police should interrogate all the kids, then only the truth will come out,” said the mother.
Amit Chaudhuri is an Indian author who writes in English and was given the Sahitya Akademi Award in 2002 for his novel ‘A New World’.
