KOLKATA: In a new twist to serial killer Udayan Das’ murder spree, Bankura police found that the serial killer had two more women from Bhopal on his radar. The accused has revealed during interrogation that he had allegedly promised a job in the United Nations to both these women, akin to his victim and deceased live-in partner Akansha Sharma. However, the two women are untraceable.
"Scanning of Udayan's laptop has revealed intimate photographs of Udayan with a Bhopal resident. During a search in Udayan's Bhopal residence, photographs with another woman were also found. On questioning, Udayan has confessed that he had promised jobs in UN to both the women. He claimed that both the women are residents of Arera Colony in Bhopal," a Bankura Police official told New Indian Express.
Bhopal police, who on Monday raided the two addresses given by Udayan Das found them empty. Bankura police suspect that the triple murder accused became close to the two women after murdering Akansha Sharma on July 14, last year. "Udayan has even claimed that he went to watch a movie with one of them the day after Akansha's murder. Her biodata was found on his laptop," added the officer.
A hunt is on for the whereabouts of the two women, and Udayan is being interrogated to ascertain whether they are still alive or have met the same fate as Akansha Sharma.
Bankura police meanwhile claim that Udayan Das made 22 calls to a close friend, Vikas Singh, who lives in Patna, three days after he murdered Akansha Sharma. Police sources said Vikas Singh is absconding from his Patna residence.
Bhopal resident and Bengal native Udayan Das had murdered and entombed his girlfriend Akansha in his Bhopal house since July last year and killed and buried his parents at their Raipur residence seven years ago.
