KOLKATA: Another party leader Ritesh Roy was found dead at Dadpur in Hooghly district on February 11, shortly after the murder of Trinamool Congress MLA Satyajit Biswas. Roy, 45, was a cooperative society chairman from East Midnapore district's Marishda village. Roy was missing since 7 February, his wife Mahua Roya confirmed. Police recovered Roy's body from a bush beside the highway, two km from Dadpur. He was taken to a hospital, where he was declared dead on arrival. Roy's son said, “There are two external injury marks on Roy's throat and eye. The post mortem report said he was killed by strangulation. After we got the news from police in Hooghly, I went there and identified his body. We want strong action against the murderers.” His wife said he left his house in East Medinipur to go to Kolaghat in the same district.
