Saurabh, was responsible for Railway scrap tendering but Police tells he died of a snake bite. The family believes something else and have alleged that he is murdered by Mafia.
The fact that he was responsible for Railway scrap tendering and that he refused to accept bribe for signing a particular tender, is the reason behind his death, as told by his family.
It is also reported by Saurabh’s friends that he was receiving threat calls from past a few days but he did not pay much heed to it.
It is also known that the regions like Kharagpur, Assansul, are safe regions for Mafias, especially who deal with Railway scrap and they also have good backing of the ruling party. This might be the reason that his family believes that the police is reluctant in investigating properly.
