‘Dead’ son back

Barasat, Dec. 25: A teenager who had “died” in 2004 returned home this afternoon.

Soumen Banerjee’s mother had seen a corpse and identified her son, who went missing after he left home with friends for a soiree in Ranaghat, Nadia, 65km from his house in North 24-Parganas’ Khardah.

The corpse was found on railway tracks near Ranaghat. After a post-mortem, the body was handed over to the family and cremated.

Soumen, now 21, walked into his home, 30km from Calcutta, this afternoon. Relatives said he was in a daze and said he went to Mumbai that night. An elated but stunned mother Krishna said: “The body I saw was similar to that of Soumen in height and build. The clothes were also similar. I couldn’t look at the face.”
