before her transfer to Raipur. How else would the deaths go unnoticed for years?” says the 75-year-old who was Das’s senior at BHEL “Even the father had almost no friends in office Once he left BHEL and Bhopal he did not keep in touch” says Ringe It was around June 2016 that Akansha came to live with Udayan in Saket Nagar say police Ringe says that while Udayan introduced her as his wife she never spoke to anybody and “we saw her barely a couple of times” Police believe Udayan killed her by the third week of July and entombed her body He has told police that he drew his inspiration from an episode of the American show Crime Scene Investigation (CSI) “The episode apparently shows the murderer entomb the body but a crack in the concrete eventually leads sniffer dogs to the murder So Udayan ensured there were no cracks in the tomb he built” says Raipur IG Gupta While Udayan claims Akansha was his live-in partner and that he killed her because of her “proximity to her other friends” her family denies his claims At the family’s rented home in Bankura a district in West Bengal Ayush five years younger to Akansha says Udayan was his sister’s ‘friend’ on social networking sites “He pretended to have good contacts in the US and had assured her help in getting a job in the US” he says Akansha’s father Shivendra Sharma the chief manager of a nationalised bank in Bankura says the last time she came home in the last week of June she was happy “She showed us her offer letter from UNICEF (police now say it was fake allegedly created by Udayan) and said she would be posted in New York She was excited about going abroad Since she was going alone I asked her if she needed money She told me to deposit Rs 1 lakh saying she would have to pay for tickets and that the company would reimburse her later I deposited Rs 120000” says Sharma By then the family knew of Udayan as the one who was helping Akansha with her visa and other documents and so they had saved his phone number On June 22 the family dropped her off at Durgapur station from where she boarded a train to Delhi After reaching Delhi she spoke to her parents saying she was waiting for her tickets after which she would fly to New York While it’s unclear how and why she went to Bhopal from Delhi her family now believes that Udayan probably persuaded her to do so telling her that her visa and other documents were getting delayed that she should come to Bhopal and not tell her parents so as to save them the anxiety So while the Sharma family believed she had flown to New York on June 28 police say she was in Bhopal all along Sharma says Akansha kept telling them that she was fine in the US The last time they spoke to her was on July 14 – it was a short conversation says Sharma From the next day on they only got WhatsApp messages (police now believe she was dead by then and that Udayan was the one sending these messages) Sharma says they never suspected anything wrong “because we kept getting messages from her phone We would get missed calls at night and when we tried calling back in the morning she wouldn’t pick up Now we realise it was Udayan who was using her phone We would get messages from her saying she had not been able to get a SIM card in the US so it wasn’t possible to talk on phone and that she could only message On the whole we were convinced that she was in New York” An official at the Bankura Sadar police station where Udayan is in police custody says “He told us that after her murder he used to maintain US time — sleep all day and wake up at night He would also send the family photos of New York When they asked for a selfie Udayan impersonating Akansha would say that her front camera wasn’t working and she would buy a phone soon” Sharma says that on October 5 they got a message from Akansha’s phone saying Udayan would visit them in Bankura after which he would join her in New York “He was here the next day His behaviour was very normal He kept insisting that we go to New York and meet Akansha that she would be missing us He assured us that he would make all arrangements and then left” says Sharma A few days later the family got a message from Udayan saying Akansha would come to Bankura in October “Later he said she had missed her flight After November Udayan stopped taking our calls and there were no messages from Akansha either” says Sharma That’s when the family approached the Bankura police who traced her phone’s last location to Saket Nagar in Bhopal They allege that when they first went to locate their daughter in Bhopal on November 30 the Bhopal police suggested it was a case of elopement “We came back empty handed” says her father Shivendra On January 5 the family lodged a case of kidnapping at the Bankura police station SP (Bankura) Sukhendu Hira says the turning point came when they looked up Akansha’s passport details and found she hadn’t even stepped out of the country “We knew this was a serious case — a person was virtually present but physically missing” says SP Hira The West Bengal Police then moved a Bankura court for a search warrant of Udayan’s Saket Nagar home It was there that police found the platform and inside Akansha’s body wrapped in polythene “Because the body had been so carefully wrapped some of the features were still intact — I could find injury marks on the neck and face’’ says Dr Ashok Sharma director of Medico Legal Institute in Bhopal Apart from the body police say they found three 56-inch television sets two washing machines and other expensive furniture in the house besides close to 2500 CDs of Hollywood television series and movies mainly on crime Police however are still unsure of the motive Sources in the West Bengal Police say that once Akansha figured out Udayan’s deceit she bought a train ticket from Bhopal to Howrah on July 12 But she was killed — either on July 14 or 15 “He was confident he would get away like he had for seven years after killing his parents in 2010” says a police officer who was a part of the search operation in Bhopal THE CASE SO FAR Feb 3: Udayan Das (pic) arrested after he admitted to killing his live-in partner Akansha Sharma and burying her body under a marble
