A FORMER Kalyani University professor was found dead inside her house under mysterious circumstances at Chinsurah in Hooghly district on Thursday. The deceased, Sulekha Mukherjee (74), had retired as the head of the department of mathematics in Kalyani University. “She used to stay alone. She was found with her throat slit and her face was covered with a piece of cloth. We have recovered hand gloves from the spot,” said a police officer.

Police said the murder came to light when Mukherjee domestic help arrived at her house like every day and found the door locked. Despite repeated attempts, she didn’t receive any response when she knocked on the door. As she raised an alarm, the neighbours broke open the door and found Mukherjee lying in a pool of blood. The police were informed, which sent the body for postmortem examination.

“It looks like a case of dacoity… or it was planned that way. Things inside were found scattered. The almirah door was open…,” said a police officer.
