Body of drowned Jadavpur varsity student recovered

IANS  |  Kolkata 

The body of Jadavpur University's engineering student, who fell into the river during a boat ride three days ago and drowned, was recovered on Sunday, police said.

Raunak Saha, a second year engineering student, fell into the Hooghly river during a boat ride with four of his friends near the Pani Ghat region on Thursday afternoon. His body could not be traced in spite of a thorough search operation by the Kolkata river traffic guard.

On Sunday, Saha's mortal remains were recovered from underneath the jetty at Fairlie Place Ghat, police said.

The body was identified by his father, who has lodged a police complaint against his son's friends alleging murder.

"The friends are involved in it. Their families have approached me with cash to settle the matter," he said.

Police interrogated the boatman and the four friends of the victim including two girls, in South Port police station on Thursday evening. The boatman was later arrested.

"We are investigating the matter. A post mortem would be done to find out the real reason behind the youth's death," police said.
