The Calcutta High Court on Tuesday ordered registration of a murder case in the mysterious death of computer graphics teacher Rizwanur Rahman and directed the CBI to start investigations afresh.
Over two years after computer graphics teacher Rizwanur Rahman was found dead under mysterious circumstances near a railway track in Kolkata, the Calcutta High Court on Tuesday directed the CBI to register a murder case and initiate the investigations afresh.
A division bench of Justices Bhaskar Bhattacharya and P Mondal directed the investigating agency to conclude its investigation within four months.
Rizwanur was found dead near railway tracks in Dumdum area on September 21, 2007, just a month after his marriage to Priyanka Todi, daughter of industrialist Ashok Todi, owner of the Rs 200-crore Lux Cozi hosiery brand.
Todi, his brother Pradip and brother in-law Anil Sarogi are accused in the case along with senior IPS officers then serving in the Kolkata Police.
The court directed the CBI to treat a September 21, 2007, complaint by Rizwanur's elder brother Rukbanur Rahman to be treated as an FIR.
It was alleged that Rizwanur had been threatened and intimidated by senior officers of Kolkata Police at the behest of Todi and other relatives in allowing her to go back to her paternal home at posh Salt Lake area.
However, despite an assurance that she would be sent back to Rizwanur's home at Park Circus in south Kolkata after a week, she did not return.
