Granting permission for this today, the chief judicial magistrate of the City Sessions Court also asked the police to submit a report by 22 September on how and where Debjani’s last remains have been cremated. The skeleton of Debjani is now kept at the morgue of SSKM Hospital in the city.

The carcasses of their two pet dogs were also found in Partha’s room.
