Family members of the deceased, identified as Swarupa, who was working in a private hospital here, alleged that she has been murdered while the husband of the woman claimed she committed suicide.
The deceased’s sister Sasmita Acharya alleged that she had witnessed her brother-in-law torturing and beating her sister several times. She further claimed that her sister was killed.
