KOLKATA: A 62-year-old woman living alone with a domestic help at Bangur Avenue in Lake Town was found murdered at her home on Wednesday morning. The house was ransacked and several ornaments and valuables were missing.
The domestic help — who came from outside Bengal had joined work a week ago — was missing and cops are looking for him as the prime suspect in the case. The woman was found lying on her bed in a nightgown with a towel wrapped around her neck. Her body has started decomposing and cops suspect she was strangulated to death a couple of days ago.
Neighbours have told cops they hadn’t seen the woman since Monday. “A mineral water supplier alerted neighbours that no one was responding to the repeated knocks for two days. Our officers reached the house and found the woman dead in her bedroom and almirahs ransacked,” said an officer of Bidhannagar Commissionerate.
The woman’s son lives in Teghoria and daughter in Salt Lake. They said that in 2019, the woman had been to Mumbai where she had stayed at a hotel and met a domestic help.
