Navruna case: the police may reopen the case

After the abduction of Navruna, two cases, one by one, were registered at the city police station in the year 2012. The first case was conducted by Navruna’s father, Atulya Chakravarty, against the unknown on September 18 for the abduction of his daughter. At the same time, the second case was registered in November in the murder section against an unknown culprit on the statement of Daroga Raman Kumar. The investigation was started by considering the male skeleton found from the drain as Navruna. However, now after the final report of CBI, it has become clear that the said skeleton is not related to the Navruna case.

On November 26, 2012, the police started the investigation by registering a case in the skeleton case. Police did not find concrete evidence during the investigation. After this CBI investigation started in the Navruna kidnapping case. The case was also taken under investigation by the CBI. After this, the crime research department immediately stopped the police from taking further action on the investigation of the skeleton found. That investigation is still pending. Police can reopen the case after the final CBI report. IO Ravi Kumar Gupta said that further investigation could begin with the permission of the senior officials and the crime research department.

The police have also not yet been able to decide whose skeleton found from the drain. The police officer said Navaruna’s family was constantly requested to provide samples for DNA testing of the skeleton. However, they did not assign samples to the police. The police could not get DNA tested at their level. However, later samples were given to the family members who agreed to the CBI’s initiative. Skeletons and family members of Navaruna could not be sampled.

On 26 November 2012, the rivulet was being carried out in the presence of the local councilor. During this time a skeleton was found from the said drain. This information was given to the police of the city police station. The police seized the skeleton. The skepticism of Navaruna was revealed. The police could not obtain any concrete information.
