Police are questioning Arindam Sen — a doctor attached to KPC hospital — to find out why he sent threat letters to government officials, including one to Calcutta University vice-chancellor Sonali Chakravarti Banerjee that said her husband would be killed.

The letters Sen had sent included one to the head of the pharmacology department, where he works as an assistant professor.

Sen recently lost his mother and had been staying alone in his Amherst Street home in north Kolkata, the police said. “We have learned from his colleagues and neighbours that he is fighting a divorce suit with his second wife. His father died long ago and his mother passed away recently. Since then, he had been staying alone. He has very few relatives,” said an officer. 

Sen, 41, was arrested for allegedly sending letters forging people’s signatures to government officials, mostly with death or legal threats.

Cops said the letter he had sent to the head of the hospital’s pharmacology department mentioned an ongoing dispute between two other department employees and said the head of the department would soon get entangled in a legal case.

“Different letters have different content. But one thing is common. All the people he sent letters to are known to him somehow,” said an officer.

Police officers said Sen was yet to explain what prompted him to send such letters.

“Seven letters were sent on October 25 from a Sarat Bose Road post office and Sen was connected to all the senders or recipients in some way. In some, he used his original name to undersign,” said the officer.
