Friend arrested for Dum Dum BBA student’s murder | Kolkata News

KOLKATA: The prime suspect who allegedly murdered Dum Dum BBA student Debanjan Das on Nabami night was arrested from Budge Budge, South 24 Parganas, on Saturday, hours after police took his friend Vishal Maru into custody.
“We arrested the prime accused, Prince Singh, from a Budge Budge hideout. We located him by tracing his mobile signal. He is being interrogated at Nimta police station in North 24 Parganas and will be produced at court on Sunday,” said Barrackpore police commissioner Manoj Kumar Verma.
Maru (21) is a second-year student at a Dum Dum college, while Singh is a college dropout. Das was shot dead in his car at Birati on the city’s northern fringe around 2.30am on October 8.
Both Singh and Maru’s names figure in the FIR as accused along with Das’s girlfriend. Singh was her former boyfriend. Police suspect the love triangle could have led to the murder. Cops interrogated Maru and zeroed in on Singh. The arrested duo has been charged with murder under Section 302 IPC.
“Both Maru and Singh, who knew the victim, were present at a pub in Salt Lake’s Sector 5 with Das and his girlfriend. Singh and 12 other youths were in a party on Navami evening. Some others in the party are also being questioned,” an officer said.
Sources said Das and his girlfriend left the pub around 1.20am on October 8. After dropping his girlfriend at Birati’s Sardarpara around 2am, Das started for his home in Dum Dum’s Daga Colony when he was shot.
According to cops, Singh had taken Maru’s two-wheeler on Nabami night. “We are also investigating whether Maru was present with Singh at the murder spot or not. We suspect someone informed the killers about Das’s whereabouts. His girlfriend, a Class-XII student, is being interrogated,” the officer said.
Forensic experts found that Das’s car crashed after he was shot. “We suspect that the car moved nearly 100m after Das was shot. He then lost control and the car crashed into a wall,” a forensic expert said.
