West Bengal, February 04, 2024: In a statement regarding the tragic murder of a student in Malda, the state BJP President, Sukanta Majumdar, expressed deep concern over the incident, labeling it as “a very sensational incident.” Majumdar raised suspicions about the execution of the murder, hinting at the possible involvement of more than one person.
Highlighting a disturbing aspect, Majumdar pointed to the alleged drug nexus prevailing in Malda. He quoted the girl’s father, who claimed that the accused was a drug addict. According to Majumdar, this drug-related issue is contributing to the repetition of such heinous incidents in the region.
The BJP leader also criticized the delayed recovery of the victim’s body, emphasizing that it took 70-72 hours to locate it. Majumdar asserted that prompt action could have potentially saved the girl’s life. He went on to claim that the manner in which the body was recovered seemed scripted, suggesting a level of prior knowledge.
