"The Chief Minister told us to keep faith on her. She assured us that truth will come out. She said culprits will be traced," Abesh's mother Rimjhim Dasgupta told reporters after the meeting.
Kolkata, Jul 29: A day after the police ruled out murder theory in the Abesh Dasgupta death case, his mother today met Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee to seek justice and said she assured her of help. “The Chief Minister told us to keep faith on her. She assured us that truth will come out. She said culprits will be traced,” Abesh’s mother Rimjhim Dasgupta told reporters after the meeting.
Dasgupta, who called on the Chief Minister along with other family members, said, “I told her that many questions still remained unanswered”. Dasgupta, who met Kolkata Police Joint Commissioner (crime) Visal Garg yesterday, said, “Garg told me that the case is still on. Many investigations are yet to be completed. He called me to give update on the CCTV footage.” She maintained the CCTV footage did not have entire sequence of the events of that day.
Garg yesterday ruled out the murder theory in the case and said the 17-year-old boy died due to injuries he met after falling from a small wall in the lawn of the Sunny Park residential complex on July 23. According to Garg, going by the CCTV footages at the complex, circumstantial evidences and statements of several witnesses including those present at the birthday celebration, security guards and others, sleuths were of the opinion that there was no “conspiracy” behind Abesh’s death. Abesh’s family members, however, refused to accept the “no conspiracy”-theory behind his death and kept on claiming that the it was a case of murder.
