The chargesheet was filed in a record time and within a year of custody trial from the date of incident, the accused has been convicted.
According to Chatterjee, the accused used to reside at the same locality as that of victim and has procured the country made firearm from Munger in Bihar. “The victim had an altercation with the mother of the accused and as such, the accused decided to kill the victim. We examined ten witnesses and 39 documentary exhibits, and 31 material exhibits were placed before court,” stated Chatterjee.
