Police on Friday night recovered the decomposed body of a doctor from her official quarters of a government hospital in Purulia and started a murder case based on a complaint lodged by her family members.

The police said the body of Suchitra Singh, 40, a medical officer posted at Barabazar primary health centre in Purulia, was recovered from her residence locked from outside.

“We have lodged a case of murder and started an investigation,” said S. Selvamurugan, the superintendent of police in Purulia.

Suchitra’s elder brother Salil Kumar Singh, a medical officer with Calcutta Municipal Corporation, accused her husband Santanu Pal of murder. Police said Pal, along with his four-year-old son, was absconding and his mobile phone was switched off.

Her family members said Suchitra married Pal, a medical representative, eight years ago without their consent. “But my sister was unhappy with her married life.  Santanu (Pal) controlled her finances,” said Salil.

A police officer said: “We are trying to nab the husband. That the residence was locked from outside raised our suspicions about him.”
