Guwahati: Arup Deka, one of the key associates of Bondona Kalita, the main suspect in a Guwahati double murder case, has been granted bail by the Gauhati High Court. Deka had been in judicial custody since March 4.
Earlier this year, on May 14, police had compiled a 1,600-page charge sheet against Bondona Kalita and two of her associates, Arup Deka and Dhanti Deka, three months after the gruesome double murder of her husband and mother-in-law.
Initial reports indicated that the murder had taken place in Guwahati’s Noonmati area and was exposed in February. It was believed to be a consequence of an extramarital affair involving the accused woman.
Following the murders, the perpetrators allegedly dismembered the victims’ bodies and concealed the remains inside a refrigerator. Three days later, the bodies were discarded in Meghalaya.
