A local court in Agartala has pulled up the Tripura police for refusing to register a complaint over the unnatural death of a youth within 26 days of his marriage.
The court has also asked the police to submit an enquiry report by June 25 to commence further legal proceedings, The Hindu reported.
Aniruddha Chakraborty was found hanging in the bedroom of his house at Ramnagar in Agartala before dawn on May 19.
Chakraborty’s family alleged foul play and even suspects the involvement of his newly married wife in the incident.
The wife reportedly deleted all the messages and contents of her husband’s smartphone before going to her parents’ house within some hours of her husband’s death.
When the victim’s father went to West Agartala Police Station lodge a complaint, police reportedly refused to register a case despite his repeated requests.
The father of the victim subsequently moved the court of the West Tripura Chief Judicial Magistrate P.P. Paul for redress in the mysterious death of his young son.
The court rapped the officer-in-charge of the police station and directed him to register an FIR for the case.
The court also directed the Investigation Officer to submit a probe report by June 25 next.
