A Central Forensic Science Laboratory (CFSL) team on Wednesday visited the parking area of Sunny Park apartment in Ballygunge, where Aabesh Dasgupta (17) was found lying in a pool of blood after a party on July 21.
Talking to mediapersons, Joint Commissioner of Police (Crime) Vishal Garg said, “Kolkata Police officials visited the site along with the CFSL team. They have collected samples as well.”
The central forensic team collected other information and evidence from the site, and even sketched a map of the area. Its detailed report is awaited.
The CFSL officials had visited the site at the behest of the Kolkata Police, which is preparing the final report based on the findings of the Special Investigation Team formed to probe the incident, according to sources.
On being asked why the CFSL team was called in even after the State Forensic Science Laboratory had visited the spot thrice, Garg said, “We wanted an expert opinion before coming to any conclusion.”
Meanwhile, Aabesh’s family members met the investigating officers at Lalbazar, the Kolkata Police headquarters, on Wednesday afternoon and handed over a letter citing the missing links in the case. They also demanded a speedy and transparent probe into the matter, sources said.
The Kolkata Police had earlier ruled out murder and said Aabesh died accidentally. Later, they interrogated several eyewitnesses over the past few days to find the missing link of the CCTV footage, which didn’t capture anything for 22 seconds.
Another person, Bappa, the caretaker of Sunny Park, was interrogated by cops on Wednesday for three hours in connection with the incident. A senior police official told The Indian Express, “The interrogation session will continue for a while. The people who were interrogated before might be summoned twice or thrice as necessary. After seeing the kind of attention this case has attracted, the police is in no hurry to come to a conclusion in this case.”
