Wife of Calcutta HC Lawyer Arrested for his Murder

The wife of a Calcutta High Court Lawyer Rajat Kumar Dey – who was found dead under mysterious circumstances at his home in Kolkata – has been reportedly arrested by police on Saturday night for allegedly murdering her husband.

According to a Hindustan Times report, the couple has a two-year-old son and lived in an apartment in New Town in the northern outskirts of Kolkata.

The dead body of the lawyer was found on the floor of his bedroom on November 25. His face has turned blue and there was a deep mark on his throat. His wife, Anindita Pal Dey, 33, who is also a lawyer made self-contradictory statements for 6 days in an apparent bid to mislead investigators. She had initially told the police that her husband had a heart attack and had fallen off the bed.

However, the autopsy report revealed that the cause of Kumar’s death was strangulation, which deepened the suspicions of the authorities. And after relentless interrogation, Anindita allegedly confessed to having strangled her husband using the cable of her mobile phone charger.

The police suspects that an extramarital affair could have led to the murder, in fact, the couple seemingly had fought over the same, a day before Kumar's death.

Both the accused and the victim chatted with people on social media before the murder. We have checked call and chat histories in their phones. Anindita received a call hours after the murder. We are focusing on this caller, ” an investigating officer was further quoted as saying.

Anindita was produced at Barasat court on Sunday morning and has been sent to police custody for eight days.
