Rizwanur case: HC seeks police report
March 26, 2008 19:29 IST
The Calcutta High Court on Wednesday asked the West Bengal government to produce the report of police inquest made after the discovery of the body of Rizwanur Rehman, the computer graphics teacher, whose body was found beside railway tracks a month after his marriage to the daughter of an affluent industrialist.
Observing that the report has not been attached by the state in its affidavit to the court, Justice Dipankar Dutta directed it be produced by next Tuesday.
The report is supposed to include details like the position of the body when found, injury marks, identification marks and also the time and place of its discovery.
Earlier, former Kolkata Police Commissioner Prasun Mukherjee's lawyer submitted before the court that there was nothing wrong in the police summoning someone in connection with a complaint.
It had been claimed that Rizwanur and his wife Priyanka had been summoned to the city police headquarters Lalbazar at the behest of Ashok Todi, father of Priyanka, and that the youth had been threatened there into sending back his wife to her father's house.
Mukherjee's counsel claimed that Rizwanur had been requested to come to the police headquarters in connection with a complaint by Todi and that he had not been subjected to any kind of coercion there.
The matter would be heard by the court again on Thursday.
