KOLKATA: Learning from the past mistakes, police are relying heavily on forensics to bail out the accused of a double murder case where a man was arrested on charges of murdering his wife and father at Tangra.
Earlier in two other murder cases reported from the Lake area, cops found that the accused had managed to either evade arrest or arrange a quick bail due to the lack of proper evidence.
A Sealdah Court on Thursday granted permission to the Tangra police to conduct DNA test on Lee Wan Sang who was accused of having murdered his wife Mi Ha (60) and his father Ka Sang (80) at China Town on August 23.
The incident had created a sensation in the locality after people found the two bodies inside Lee’s house.
In course of the investigation, the city police sought permission from court to conduct DNA test on the accused.
The senior officers of the city police believe that the test will help them crack the case. During the investigation, police had found nails of the accused inside the palm of the murdered woman. However, police failed to ascertain who the nail fragments belonged to.
Having found no option, the police sought DNA test of the accused as the investigating officers did not get any substantial evidence against him.
After starting an investigation, police arrested Lee Wan in connection with the murder. But locals claimed that outsiders who had scaled the boundary wall of the house might have been involved with the murder.
