24-year-old youth killed by lover in Ranaghat
Kolkata: A youth identified as Suman Ghosh (24) was allegedly murdered by his neighbour Shukla Ghosh over a suspected illicit relationship with her at Nokari Ghosh Para in Ranaghat, Nadia.
Locals later ransacked the accused's house. According to them, Shukla used to live at a stone throwing distance from Suman's house. Her husband lives outside of Bengal due to his profession.
Locals alleged that during her husband's absence Shukla used to hang out with several youths of the area. She had several illicit relationships with many youths. A few months ago a person who was in a relationship with Shukla got involved in a heated altercation with her over some problem. In distress, Shukla called Suman for help and since then Suman came close to her.
As both of them moved forward with their relationship, Suman discovered that Shukla has relations with other youths as well. During the Puja days, Suman protested against Shukla having multiple relationships. Over this both of them fought continuously.
On Friday evening, Shukla called Suman to her house and together consumed alcohol.
In the night, Suman felt sick after he returned his home. He was immediately rushed to Ranaghat Sub-Divisional Hospital and later referred to Jawaharlal Nehru Memorial Hospital at Kalyani where he was admitted. Suman died there on Saturday. Hearing the news, Shukla fled the area along with her daughter.
On Sunday, Suman's family members lodged a complaint. They alleged that Shukla poisoned Suman to death.
