In yet another sensational murder,an Assam Police constable deployed as a PSO on Sunday gunned down Jeuti Roy,wife of Bhupen Roy,a senior Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) leader and legislator of the Abhayapuri (North) LAC,following which he also fired at himself,sustaining multiple injuries.
Jeuti (44),mother of two,was found inside an I-10 car (AS19B-5117) with multiple bullet injuries alongside PSO Constable Sanatan Das,who too had several bullet injuries on him. Jeuti was declared brought dead when taken to a hospital. The incident occurred at around 3.15 pm,about 10 km outside Bongaigaon where the Rays lived.
Bongaigaon Superintendent of Police Nitul Gogoi said prima facie evidence,which included a note believed to have been written by Jeuti Roy,has pointed to an illicit affair she had with the constable who was attached to the MLA for several years. We are,however,yet to come to any conclusion, Gogoi said.
Sources in Bongaigaon said the legislators wife had gone out in her personal car along with PSO Sanatan Das at around 2.30 pm on Sunday. The PSO,who was found with multiple bullet injuries on his body including one on his head,was on the drivers seat while Jeuti Roy was lying on the seat by his side. The PSO has been admitted to a hospital. A case has been registered.
