Dhananjoy Chatterjee's family on Wednesday said they would neither witness his hanging, scheduled for Saturday, nor collect the body afterwards.

His father Bangshidar, who was on Wednesday officially notified of the date of the execution by the Bankura district administration, said, "We will not see our son being hanged. We are also not interested in collecting his body."
