Brother death rap on siblings in Calcutta
Police on Saturday arrested two brothers — Apu and Tapu Seal — on charges of murdering their brother Nipu six years ago.
The brothers had dug up a part of the balcony of their house in Shyamnagar, 40km north of Calcutta, and dumped the body.
A team from Jaggadal police station dug up the spot and recovered the skeletal remains after the two brothers admitted to have killed Nipu over a property dispute, the police said.
The two brothers have claimed they used to live in Bangalore and that they had returned to their Shyamnagar house a month-and-a-half ago, an officer of the Barrackpore commissionerate said.
