expressed foul play.
The body which was found floating in the lake was identified as that
of Murari Maity. He was missing from his home since Monday night but
finally the body was found floating in the Dimna Lake on Tuesday. The

the lake for sending it to the MGM Medical College mortuary for
OC, Bodam police station, Kajal Kumar Dubey said that though it was
apparently a case of suicide, they had to register a murder case
against Bijay Gupta on the basis of an FIR lodged by the deceased’s
elder brother Dhananjay Maity.
“As per FIR filed by Dhananjay his brother Murai had taken a
considerable amount of loan from Gupta, but could not repay the loan
as he had promised. As a result of the situation, Gupta put pressure
Murari to get him a plot of land close to his house registered in his
name instead of paying back the loan, but he was not interested to do
so. Eventually, there was enmity between Gupta and his brother. His
brother has claimed that it was Gupta who might have killed and
dropped the body in the lake,” said the officer-in-charge.
