A brutal case of honour killing has come to light in the city with the arrest of two friends who allegedly poisoned their 17-year old school student over a suspected money affair.
According to reports, the victim, Chandra Joyti Tripura, who read in Bharatiya Bidya Bevan’s class XI, son of Samir Tripura, leave in Abhaynagar.
West police Inspector said a case of murder was registered on today on the basis of the Chandra Joyti Tripura’s father Samir Tripura’s allegation.
The accused, Bhavesh Debbarma (27) and Shidhartha Debbarma (22), were arrested in the city. All motives for the murder, including robbery, were being investigated, said a police officer.
The West P.S’s top police officer told, “The medical reports of Chandra Joyti Tripura’s death is not natural. It is due to poisoning which could have been injected or given orally”.
According to the famous toxicologist, Paracelsus does make the poison. In other words, every chemical can be considered a poison if you take enough of it. Some chemicals, like water and iron, are necessary for life but toxic in the right amounts. Other chemicals are so dangerous they are simply considered poisons. Many poisons have therapeutic uses, yet a few have to gain favoured status for committing murders and suicides, said a Medical staff.
The Indian Penal Code, 1860, defines murder as – Except in the cases hereinafter excepted, culpable homicide is murder, if the act by which the death is caused is done with the intention of causing death,
Or- 2ndly.-If it is done with the intention of causing such bodily injury as the offender knows to be likely to cause the death of the person to whom the harm is caused.
Or- 3rdly.-If it is done with the intention of causing bodily injury to any person and the bodily injury intended to be inflicted is sufficient in the ordinary course of nature to cause death,
Or- 4thly.-If the person committing the act knows that it is so imminently dangerous that it must, in all probability, cause death, or such bodily injury as is likely to cause death, and commits such act without any excuse for incurring the risk of causing death or such injury as aforesaid
