Three of a family found murdered in West Bengal's Murshidabad district

Murshidabad (West Bengal): Three members of a family, including an eight-year-old boy, have been murdered by unidentified miscreants in this district of West Bengal, a senior police official said Wednesday.

The bodies of Bondhu Gopal Pal, a 35-year-old primary school teacher, his wife Beauty and son Angan were found lying in a pool of blood inside their residence Tuesday night in Jiaganj area of the district, the officer informed.

'Prima facie, it seems that the Pal family was murdered by unidentified miscreants Monday night. After locals did not see them at the puja pandal on Vijayadashami, they visited the Pal residence, only to find the door bolted from inside,' the officer told mediapersons.
