Midnapore / Kolkata: A youth from Behala in Kolkata has been found dead by the railway line at Digha in East Midnapore. His family has alleged that he has been murdered.

Rahul Sau (19) used to work for a private company based at Rampurhat in Birbhum. On 5 April he called up his mother in Kolkata and told her that he was going to Bolpur on an official assignment.

After that day the family could not contact him over the phone. On calling up his close friend Sujit Koyal they came to know that he had gone to Kolkata and not Bolpur. But with no trace of him even after two days, the family lodged an FIR at the Government Railway Police station at Howrah on 7 April.

Today the family received a call from police that a mutilated dead body has been found by the railway line at Digha and asked them to verify whether it is of Rahul. The family went to Digha and to their shock found out that it was of their missing son.

A leave application of his company signed by Rahul has been found on the dead body. His mother has, however, claimed that Rahul has been murdered and the leave application and the signature have been forged to make it appear suicide or accident.
