A day after teenager Abesh Dasgupta was allegedly stabbed to death by his friend with a broken liquor bottle during a birthday party at the basement of the upscale housing apartment in Sunny Park, the Ballygunge police initiated a case on murder charge under Section 302 of the Indian Penal Code on Sunday following a complaint by the victim’s mother, Rimjhim Dasgupta, who claimed that her son was killed.

Though no one has been booked in the case so far, mystery shrouded the cause of death of the 17-year-old student from Mudiali as the team of autopsy surgeons who conducted the post-mortem of his body over three hours in the evening at Calcutta Medical College and Hospital in presence of a magistrate could not conclude what actually led to the death.

In a dramatic development at night, the team of autopsy surgeons, escorted by the police, travelled to the spot at the basement of Block B of the housing apartment where Abesh was found lying in a pool of blood on Saturday evening.

They spent half-an-hour to inspect the spot and to know from the police about how Abesh was lying on the ground and the places where the blood stains were found.

The police earlier found Abesh suffered a deep cut injury near his left armpit.

Besides, some small cut wounds on his left hand and bruise on his knees were also found. Confusion prevailed since the prime suspect, who was detained by the police for questioning after the murder, claimed he was not responsible for the death of Abesh. He alleged Abesh, carrying a liquor bottle in one hand, lost balance in a drunken state, sources revealed, adding that as the liquor bottle slipped out of his hand and broke after falling on the ground, Abesh also fell on it and suffered fatal injuries. But the investigators rlater ejected his claims.
