In addition to being a photographer, the deceased worked as an app-cab driver on the side. The couple had begun living together after meeting on a social networking site a few years prior. They were living with Sanghati Paul’s son from her earlier marriage. A neighbour revealed, “They have been living in the rented flat for one-and-a-half years. The two would often have fights.” 

Sarthak Das reportedly returned from a pre-wedding photo session in an inebriated state on the fateful night. An official from Nagerbazar Police Station disclosed, “The two had an argument, which snowballed into a scuffle. Paul, in a fit of rage, stabbed Das with a knife.”

It is unclear if the young boy witnessed the murder. On the night of the tragedy, he was sent to his grandparents as he was in a state of shock, as per reports.
