KOLKATA: Subir Chaki, managing director of a Mumbai-headquartered engineering firm Kilburn Engineering, and his driver have been found murdered on Monday morning in his south Kolkata house that he was trying to sell, police stated. Investigators suspect that Chaki, who lives in New Town on the jap outskirts of Kolkata, could have come to the three-storied house at Kankulia street to seal the deal for the house with a potential purchaser.
Chaki and his driver, Rabin Mondal, have been found lifeless with a number of stab wounds on their physique together with wrists and ankles.
Police stated the bottom flooring of the house was rented to a personal company and nobody lived on the opposite flooring.
The two our bodies have been found on Monday when staff of the non-public company reported for work on Monday morning. “They found the door connecting the ground and first floors shut from the inside, which was unusual,” an officer from the Gariahat police station stated on situation of anonymity.
“There was nothing valuable in the house that might have led to a robbery,” the officer cited above stated.
Police stated the cell phones of Chaki and his driver have been lacking and will have been taken away by the one that killed them.
“It seems that the accused knew that Chaki was coming to his Kankulia road home. On earlier occasions, he would send his driver with the keys when prospective buyers wanted to see the property. It is possible that Chaki might have come to collect some payment in cash. Local residents said they heard several people talking inside the house on Sunday evening. They also claimed to have heard a woman’s voice. These claims are being verified,” a second police officer added.
An alumnus of St Xavier’s School in Kolkata, IIT-Kharagpur and IIM-Calcutta, Subir Chaki had been with Kilburn Engineering Ltd for greater than 4 years.
“His son and daughter live in London and Mumbai, respectively,” the officer added.
Rabin Mondal’s son Dilip Mondal stated, “My father worked for Chaki for more than 20 years. He used to come home only once a month…. We have no idea what happened.”
Police stated the post-mortem was accomplished on Monday night and the our bodies have been handed over to the households of the 2 victims.
The investigation has been taken up by the detective division of the Kolkata Police.
