Accordeing to sources for the past few days the Bardhan family had hired five painters who are outsiders to paint their home, out of whom 4 have gone missing because of which the locals suspect that the painters were involved in the murder.

Police have nabbed the fifth painter and are interrogating him, however people are cautioned against hiring outsiders without proper verification of their antecedents.

Such a dreaded incident have created panic among the residents of the area and Siliguri too because most of the households generally appoint laborers, workers, electricians etc. without knowing the background of them for small works. They stay in the house at that time when most people go to work and no one to protect. The members of the households can become immediate victims to those ill intentioned people.
