She also promised to clear a debt of Rs 70,000, which Sahadeb had taken for Mita’s marriage, from the Chief Minister’s Relief Fund and payment of his medical expenses.

“They are a very poor family. One member of the family will be given a job and the debt of Rs 70,000 which they had taken during the girl’s marriage, will be cleared from the Chief Minister’s Relief Fund… And I have ordered the CID to inquire into the matter,” the CM said.

The family met Mamata for around an hour after they received a call from Nabanna. “Criminal cases against women will be handled by topmost agencies. The government is keeping a close watch on Mita’s death and probe,” said Chief Secretary State Basudeb Banerjee.

Later, Sahadeb said: “She was extremely warm and extended all help from her side. She appreciated that Mita was well educated despite we being so poor. It was kind of her to offer a job to one member of our family… I am satisfied that she has taken my daughter’s death so seriously. We appealed to her for justice.”

A CID team has left for Uluberia to probe the matter, said source.
