Kolkata: Partha De, the man found living with the corpses of his sister and two dogs for over six months in the city, was on Friday formally charged with negligence and causing a public nuisance.

Filing the charge sheet in the sensational Robinson Street case that came to light about six months back, police also accused the former techie of tampering with evidence.


Partha De has been charged with attempts to tamper with evidence and keeping dead bodies in his house without informing the police. The charges have been brought against him under IPC’s sections 268 (public nuisance), 269 (negligent act likely to spread infectious disease) besides other sections,

Police on June 10 stumbled upon the maggot-infested skeletons of Debjani and two dogs while investigating the death of Partha’s father Arabinda De, the owner of the house whose burnt body was found inside a bathroom.

Days later, Partha was lodged at a city mental hospital and quizzed by police in the presence two nuns of the Mother Teresa-founded the Missionaries of Charity. The presence of the nuns was ensured following repeated pleas by Partha.

An investigation revealed that Debjani starved herself to death nearly 6-7 months before the gory incident became public.

Partha, during an interaction with media persons, revealed that Debjani was into religious fasting in a bid to revive her two dead dogs.

DNA tests were conducted to ascertain that the skeletal remains were that of Partha’s sister Debjani, who was earlier employed as a music teacher in a reputed school.

Partha was released from the hospital on October 1.

Pakistan has failed miserably to protect Hindus, their interests.

A Hindu temple in Pakistan's Punjab province was reportedly vandalized by hundreds of people after a nine-year-old Hindu boy, who allegedly urinated at a local seminary, received bail, a media report said on Thursday.

According to the Dawn news report, the incident took place on Wednesday in Bhong town, about 60 km from Rahim Yar Khan city.

Besides the vandalization, the mob also blocked the Sukkur-Multan Motorway (M-5), the report added.

Citing sources, Dawn news said that a case was registered against the minor on July 24 based on a complaint filed by a cleric, Hafiz Muhammad Ibrahim, of the Darul Uloom Arabia Taleemul Quran.

The sources said that "some Hindu elders did tender an apology to the seminary administration saying the accused was a minor and mentally challenged".

But, when a lower court granted him bail a few days ago, some people incited the public in the town on Wednesday and got all shops there closed in protest, the report quoted the sources as further saying.

A video clip showing people wielding clubs and rods storming the temple and smashing its glass doors, windows, lights, and damaging the ceiling fans went viral on social media.
