Siliguri, Dec.3: A 60-year-old widow was found dead in her house at Maddhya Shantinagar.
Minarani Majumdar lived with her younger son Gautam, an electrician. He was the first to see his mother’s body on the bed this afternoon.
The neighbours said that she had been living there for the past eight years after her husband died.
“Minarani has been strangulated and we have started a murder case,” said Rajen Chetri, the officer-in-charge of Bhaktinagar police station. A television set and a CD player are missing from the house. But police are not considering theft to be the only motive behind the murder.
Minarani is survived by three sons, Swapan, Gautam and Kajol.
