Affair whiff in boy death

A first-year college student was found dead near new bus stand in Hazaribagh town on Wednesday morning, spurring murder fears.

Sujit Kumar Gupta (21) was a resident of Katkamdag village, 7km from the town, and was studying arts at Markham College, 4km from his home. The youth also worked at a construction site near old bus stand, a kilometre from his college, to support his family.

On Tuesday morning, he left for college from where he went to his workplace and left for home in the evening with his day’s earnings. But, Sujit never returned home.

Police, during preliminary probe, suspected a hooch tragedy. However, doctors hinted at poisoning, prompting police to register an unnatural death case. It may be changed into one of murder if post-mortem confirms the same.

Uncle Kuldeep Sahu pointed the needle of suspicion at the family of a girl Sujit was in love with. “Her family were against the affair. They had even threatened us,” Sahu said.
