Ritwick Ghatak's grand daughter dies, family alleges foul play

Kolkata, Dec 2 (IANS) Following the mysterious death of legendary film maker Ritwick Ghatak's grand daughter Aditi, her family members have lodged a police complaint alleging foul play, police said Sunday.

"An injured and unconscious Aditi was discovered beside the road in Sonarpur (city outskirt) Friday. She was admitted to a private nursing home where she died Sunday," an officer of the Tiljala police station under which the complaint was made said.

"The mother of the victim Sangeeta has filed a first information report (FIR) alleging murder against three persons with whom Aditi had gone out Friday," added the officer.

Aditi had gone out Friday night with four of her friends including a boy without informing her mother. After she did not return, her mother had filed a missing person case.

"If she had met with an accident then why was she found alone at the site? How come nothing happened to the others? There is something wrong," alleged Sangeeta who Sunday filed the FIR.

State Urban Development Minister Firhad Hakim visited the bereaved and has asked police to expedite the probe.
