CM called Aditiís family, assured help

Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee reportedly called Sangeeta Ghatak, daughter of late film director Ritwik Ghatak, after she came to know that her daughter Aditi Ghatak died under mysterious cirumstances.

"After the chief minister (Mamata Banerjee) heard about the incident, she called me on Sunday night and assured that she will look into the matter. She even told me that she will be returning to Kolkata on Tuesday and will speak to me," said Sangeeta on Tuesday. She said she would demand a fair probe from the chief minister.

Aditi died after reportedly getting drowned in a canal in Sonarpur. She was accompanied with two more girls and her friend Gyanjeet, whom the family accuses of killing Aditi in cold blood.

One of her friends on condition of anonymity said Aditi knew Gyanjeet for the past three months and all of them had consumed alcohol on Friday evening before they went for a long drive at Kheyada in Sonarpur. The post-mortem report, however, indicated that Aditi was not drunk.

Aditi's mother also refuted the claim saying her daughter never took alchohol. The family is yet to get a copy of the post mortem examination report which stated that it was a case of drowning.

Sangeeta said the police have failed to clear some of the missing links in the case. "If Aditi had got drowned, then how come her phone was not switched off and was recovered without any damage. Her money bag is missing and till now the police have not interrogated her friends who accompanied her.

Police have refused to comment.
