Bandhana Tappo stated, “It would be difficult on part of a father to bear his newly married son’s death. After an argument, Birendra and Manjit had tied Anand’s hands before strangulating him to death at the apartment and termed it as suicide.”

He added, “Anand returned to Bhubaneshwar after getting married. The trio was leading a happy life. On February 28th, Birendra called me to inform me that Anand committed suicide. When our family members reached the spot, Birendra showed ignorance about the matter. From the prima facie evidence it was clear that Anand was murdered. Sensing Birendra’s hand behind Anand’s death, we went to file a complaint with Infocity police. However, the police had not received our complaint. Even after four months, police have failed to unravel the exact reason behind Anand’s death.”
