Printed from Arambag: The Arambag sub-divisional court on Saturday sentenced a truck driver, Lakshmi Adhikary, for killing his wife Sulekha and son Sujay on August 5, 2012. Lakshmi, who lived in Pursurah village, married Sulekha from Balipur village in Khanakul more than 12 years ago. Around three years ago, a drunk Lakshmi propositioned Sulekha's sister Bandana, a divorcee. But when Bandana declined, Lakshmi threatened to murder murder his wife and son.
Little did Bandana know that he would carry out the threat and hacked Sulekha and Sujay to death with a vegetable-cutter. Additional district judge Subhro Bandyopadhyay on Saturday issued a death sentence after the public prosecutor, Naba Mazumdar, argued strongly in favour of capital punishment. "The murders were pre-planned and calculated," Mazumdar said.
