Jamshedpur : As the police continue to crack the mystery behind the twin murder in Madhusudan Complex under Ulidih police station in Mango, the needle of suspicion turns toward Shashi Prasad whose wife and four-year-old son was found murdered in their flat.
Prasad’s role into the murder is under suspicion, the police are not allowing him to go to his native place in Bihar Sharif for the `Shradh’ rituals.
Bodies of Manju Prasad (41) and her four-year-old son, Dweej Kumar were found murdered on the bed the residential flat in Madhusudan Complex under Ulidih police station on Wednesday night. The police had started probing into the sensational twin murder after Manju’s husband Shashi Prasad who was posted as senior manager at Indian Overseas Bank in Kolkata arrived in the city on Thursday.
A forensic team and a CID team which had been to the scene of murder from Ranchi on Thursday recovered a cup of tea from the room the murder took place and a blood-stained glove outside the residential flat.
During the investigation, the police have found that four-year-old Dweej was not Prasad’s own son, rather he had adopted the child when he was posted at Gauhati.
” We are investigating the incident. A lot of clues have been revealed. We were studying Prasad as he got married in 1999 and his son was born in 2012.
At some point of time, he had revealed that that his wife not fit for conceiving a child and later claimed the child was conceived after proper treatment at Gauhati where he was posted. But when we told him that we will do a DNA on the child’s blood and him, he soon confessed that he had adopted the child from a poor woman at Gauhati,” said a senior police officer.
The police officer said that they had checked the murder victim Manju’s mobile phone which had no balance for talk-time.
“Then we checked the television having a disc connection at Prasad’s house, and the subsequent queries unfolded that though Manju would stay with her son at Madhusudan complex residence, the payment of the disc antenna connection had not be made since the past three months. Prasad is not answering the queries as to why had he not paid the disc connection bills for so many months,” pointed out the police officer.
The police officer who is also in the probe team on condition of anonymity said Prasad has been making frantic efforts to go away to his village on the plea of performing `Shradh’ of his wife and son, but they are not allowing him to go there.
“We have been informed from the relatives and also some residents of Madhusudan Complex that Prasad had not good relation with his wife and son. We have to interrogate the man and we are confident that he would definitely get a breakthrough in the case shortly,” said the police officer.
Superintendent of police (city) Prashant Anand, however, said that are probing the case in every angle.
“We are not allowing Prasad to go to Bihar Sharif as we have to interrogate him in the case. We expect the case will be able to solve the case soon,” said Anand.
