Haridevpur resident Ayan Mondal’s murder was a plot well executed by his friend’s family, police officers probing the crime said on Sunday.

The body of Ayan, 21, was recovered from a place in Mograhat in South 24-Parganas, about 32km from Haridevpur, early on Friday. He had been missing since Wednesday night. His relatives lodged a murder case against his friend and her family.


Seven persons, including the friend and her parents and brother, have been arrested. The accused have been remanded in police custody till October 12.

“Ayan was killed in a room on the first floor of the friend’s house. The room was cleaned up in a way that forensic experts had to struggle to collect blood stains,” said an police officer.

“Ayan’s body was wrapped in a tarpaulin sheet that was taken from a pandal nearby and covered in a way so that no one could make out it was a dead body. His mobile phone was thrown away and that remains untraced even till now.”

Officers said they had reasons to believe that the mother of Ayan’s friend had plotted to murder him after he turned up at their house in an inebriated state. The friend’s father had planned the disposal of the body.

“When Ayan was attacked with a stick and a brick, he was not in a state to resist,” the officer said.
