Worried about her whereabouts, her husband went searching for her around 2:00 PM. To his dismay, he found that the worker's room was locked from inside, and despite repeated calls, there was no response from inside. Fearing the worst, he broke-open the lock and found her wife Mrs. Shoba Rani Mondal's lifeless body. As per her husband, Mr. Manohar Mondal, "the murderer mashed the head of her wife Mrs. Shoba Rani Mondal with an LPG cylinder."

The husband immediately alerted the nearby residents, who, in turn, informed the police about the tragic incident. Upon arrival, the police registered a murder case at Pahargaon Police Station, suspecting foul play in Shoba Rani Mondal's untimely demise.

The prime suspect Mr. Naba Kumar Dhar is absconded after the heinous crime. Based on a complaint lodged by the victim's family, the police have registered a murder case against him under Section 302 (murder) of the Indian Penal Code. More details are awaited.
