Kolkata: The postmortem report of the elderly couple murdered earlier in July in Kolkata’s Netaji Nagar has revealed chilling details of the crime. Sixty five-year-old Sapna and her husband Dilip Mukherjee, 75, were found murdered in their house on July 30.

The investigation has revealed that Sapna was sexually assaulted with a paint roller and strangulated her to death before raping her in front of her husband. The couple was murdered by a labourer, identified as Hamroz Alam, who had been called in to paint their two-storied house. The couple was living alone.

Alam later smothered the bed-ridden husband and fled with some valuables. He has been taken into police custody and has confessed to his crime.

While Sapna’s body was found near the staircase landing, her husband’s body was found on the bed. The rooms were ransacked and cash worth Rs 50,000-Rs 70,000 was missing from the house.

“Sapna was sexually assaulted before being murdered. We have arrested the prime accused and the investigation is underway,” confirmed Joint Commissioner of Police Murlidhar Sharma.
