- Fresh probe in lady death

Bhagalpur/Patna, Jan. 15: Bhagalpur senior superintendent of police (SSP) K.S. Anupams statement that the woman, who went missing from Brahmaputra Mail and was found hanging from a tree, had committed suicide has earned the officer flak from her superiors.

The 40-year-old woman from Bengals Jalpaiguri district, on her way to New Delhi, went missing on January 12 between Vikramshila and Kahalgaon railway stations in Bhagalpur district. Her semi-nude body was found on January 13 from a mango orchard under Kahalgaon police station in Bhagalpur.

Deputy inspector-general of police (Bhagalpur range) Amit Kumar Jain, who yesterday visited the site from where the womans body was found, ordered a fresh probe into the incident.
