May 28: The bodies of two men was found in Haldibari Tea Estate in the Dooars this morning, and the friends of the duo have alleged that they were lynched to death by the security guards at Telepara Tea Estate, who dumped their bodies after killing them.
A section of residents of Haldibari Tea Estate blocked NH31C for about an hour from 11am. Premchand Oraon, 35, and Basia Oraon, 32, had gone to Telepara Tea Estate with two other friends last evening. The men are residents of Haldibari Tea Estate, which is 3km from Telepara Tea Estate.
“My brother and three of his friends had gone to Telepara Tea Estate yesterday. The security guards there started beating all of them and alleged that they were thieves. Two of his friends managed to escape. After killing my brother and Basia they must have dumped their bodies in our garden to dupe us and the police,” said Premchand’s brother.
