Locals here on Saturday held a candlelight march demanding justice in the murder case of a teacher, his wife and a child in the city.

Trinamool Congress MLA Shaoni Singha Roy was also present in the protest.

Three people including a child were murdered by unknown miscreants inside their house on October 8 in Jiyaganj area of Murshidabad.

The deceased were identified as Bandhuprakash Pal (35), his wife Beauty Mondal Pal (30) and son Angan Bandhu Pal (8).

Reacting to the same, West Bengal BJP chief Dilip Ghosh said, "We have sought time from the President and the Union Home Minister. When they will give us time, our delegation of representatives will apprise them of the situation in Bengal."
