Cross-State Murder Probe:
Biswas declared that an FIR would be filed by Netaji Nagar police station based on the family’s complaint, possibly leading to a state criminal investigation department (CID) probe. Although unclear how West Bengal police can investigate a crime in Andhra Pradesh, Biswas noted Banerjee’s concern. The girl had been in a Visakhapatnam hostel since May 2022, preparing for NEET. Her death, initially reported as a fall, is now suspected as murder due to inconsistencies in statements and the police report. The family sought the Andhra Pradesh high court’s intervention, appointing a commissioner to gather evidence.
