Kolkata/IBNS: West Bengal Criminal Investigation Department (CID) on Monday took over the probe into the mysterious death of state's Leader of the Opposition (LoP) Suvendu Adhikari's security personnel Suvabrata Chakraborty, officials said.

Earlier on Oct 13 in 2018, the then Bengal Transport Minister Suvendu Adhikari's bodyguard, Suvabrata Chakraborty, was found in a critical condition with a gunshot wound to his head inside his room at a police barrack in East Medinipur's Contai.

Chakraborty was rushed to a hospital where he succumbed to his injury days later.

That time, police had indicated that it could be a case of suicide though neither a conclusion nor any major development was noticed in the investigation.

Recently, after two-and-half years after the incident, Suvabrata Chakraborty's wife, Suparna Kanjilal Chakraborty, had lodged a complaint with Contai Police Station demanding proper investigation into her husband's mysterious death, based on which local police re-registered the case.

Sources in East Medinipur district police said that an FIR had been registered against 'unknown miscreants' under IPC sections 302 (murder) and 120B (criminal conspiracy).

State CID officials said that after taking over the probe, its sleuths will visit Suvabrata Chakraborty's house in Mahishadal to talk to his family members later on Monday.

"Our investigators will also visit Contai PS to discuss the developments in the case with the Investigating Officer (IO)," a senior CID official said.
