The City Diary

Family feud triggers sibling murder

A 30-year-old man was murdered in a crowded bus at Rajarhat, on the cityís northern fringes, on Saturday night. The killers slit the throat of Salauddin, a resident of Omarhati, in Rajarhat, with a razor, said additional superintendent Ajay Nand on Sunday. The murder was the fallout of a family feud over property. The three killers have been identified as brothers of Salauddin. One of them, Sujauddin, has been arrested. The other two are absconding.

Unclaimed bag at airport

A bag, stuffed with finished leather goods, was found lying in the international terminal of Dum Dum airport on Sunday. The area was cordoned off by the CISF. A similar incident occurred in the domestic terminal on Saturday. In a separate incident, a 30-year-old man was arrested at gate no. 8 of the airport when he tried to enter the protected area by scaling a wall.

Body found

The body of Muslima Bibi, 30, was found beside a wetland at Baduria, in North 24-Parganas, on Sunday morning, police said. Investigations revealed that she was strangled to death.

SSKM status

The state government has decided to engage the University College of Medicineís post-graduate teachers as demonstrators at SSKM Hospital. The decision comes on the eve of a visit by the Medical Council of India to the hospital to ascertain whether under-graduate courses can be started there. The decision, however, has caused resentment among some teachers, who have decided to discuss the issue with the government.


A seminar on satellite broadband was held in the city recently. Jairam Ramesh, secretary, economic affairs department of the Congress Party, delivered the keynote address.
