West Bengal CID registers murder case in Hemtabad MLA Debendra Nath Roy’s death case

Kolkata: West Bengal CID has registered a murder case under Section 302 IPC (Indian Penal Code) into the death of Hemtabad MLA Debendra Nath Ray. The case was filed following the complaint of the deceased’s wife. The CPI(M)-turned-BJP leader was found hanging outside a shop near his residence in Bindal village in North Dinajpur district on July 13.

The post-mortem report has stated that Ray “died due to hanging and no injury mark was found on his body”.

The West Bengal BJP has accused the Mamata Banerjee-led government of trying to “project the murder as suicide”. The saffron party has called for a CBI probe into Ray’s death case.

West Bengal Police have claimed that they have found a ‘suicide note’ from the deceased’s pocket, in which he has blamed two people for his death. The family of Debendra Nath Ray and BJP members have alleged it was a “cold-blooded murder by Trinamool Congress”. The ruling party has vehemently denied the allegations.

On Tuesday, BJP leaders Kailash Vijayvargiya, Arvind Menon, Babul Supriyo, Swapan Dasgupta and Raju Bista met President Ram Nath Kovind at Rashtrapati Bhavan and demanded dismissal of Mamata Banerjee government in Bengal.

While speaking to mediapersons after meeting the President, Vijayvargiya said, “Democracy has been hanged in West Bengal. Political workers were being killed so far, and now elected leaders are being murdered and shown to have committed suicide. Anarchy prevails in the state, and its government has no right to be in power… We have demanded that the assembly be dissolved.”

The BJP delegation also called on Union Home Minister Amit Shah and demanded a CBI probe into Ray’s death case. The saffron party had observed a 12-hour long bandh in north Bengal on Tuesday.

Reacting to the allegations of BJP, The TMC said, “the BJP should desist from doing petty politics”.

West Bengal Home Secretary Alapan Bandyopadhyay said circumstantial evidence and post-mortem report said Ray’s death was a suicide.

“The death was due to the effects of hanging as noted above-antemortem in nature. Further information, if any, will be provided after the receipt of the chemical examiner’s report”.
