Mystery shrouds the death of 70-year-old woman, whose body was found inside inside her flat at Bediadanga in Kasba, where she lived alone.
Police said Sulachana Kerry, a retired school teacher seemed to have been murdered by some unidentified criminals, who also decamped with valuables from her flat.
Police came to know after preliminary investigation that a set of key of her flat was kept with the residents of her adjacent flat. This evening when some of the victim’s students came for private tuition they found the flat locked from outside. No one responded even after repeatedly knocking.
Then they went to neighbour, who had the other set of key.
The neighbour opened the door and went inside to find the woman lying in a pool of blood with injuries all over her body.
They immediately informed police, who rushed to the spot and sent the body for an autopsy.
