KOLKATA: Exactly 87 days after the first arrest in the double murder of senior corporate executive Subir Chaki (61) and his driver Rabin Mandal (65) in a Kankulia Road house in Golpark, the detective department has filed the charge sheet, naming all six accused arrested so far.
Police have claimed that main accused Biki Halder alias Vicky (26) and his mother Mithu (42) had carried out the murders last October in a bid to rob Chaki. The cops have explained the sequence of events, stating it was Rabin who was murdered first.
“We have submitted the charge sheet against Vicky, Mithu, Bapi Mondal (27), Jahir Gazi (25), Sanjay Mondal (34) and Subhankar Mondal in the AJM Court of Alipore. All of them have been charged with IPC sections pertaining to murder, criminal conspiracy, dacoity with murder and common intention. The charge sheet runs into 500 pages and we have cited 80 witnesses,” said joint CP (crime) Murlidhar Sharma. Police said they might file a supplementary charge sheet if new evidence emerges.
According to police, Chaki had advertised his flat for sale. “Mithu and Vicky approached him to buy it and came to see the flat. They contacted Chaki again, but with a different identity. They came prepared for the crime and had enlisted the help of their four associates,” said an officer.
Vicky and Subhankar were the last ones to be arrested, from Mumbai, almost two weeks after Mithu was first picked up by investigators. The charge sheet mentions how Vicky and his associate fled the city on October 18, a day after the crime, and reached Mumbai. They knew a few people from the Diamond Harbour area who were working as labourers there and the duo took up jobs as watchmen at an under-construction building.
