As events unfold,Mumbai police suspect that the sensational murder of 24-year-old TCS employee Koushambi Layek may actually have been a suicide attempt that went wrong!.
Cops in India are probing to see if the girl and her boyfriend, Manish Thakur, 28, had entered into such a pact and if Thakur developed cold feet at the last moment, after Koushambi Layek had been shot, either by herself or by him. Police also want to examine if she committed suicide in Thakur's absence. Usually a gunshot to head is depicted in movies as a very uneventful and less scary incident,which leaves a little "cute" hole on victim's head. But in reality , the bullet would burst open the skull , exposing brain matter, and in some case, even squash the eyes.A scene like that, with an open squashed head with brain matter and blood scattered everywhere,is more than enough to take the sh*t out of any normal living soul. Chances are that , the guy got scared and changed his mind seeing the gore and ran away.This is further supported by the following findings:
Thakur left all his personal belongings and ID proof at the Sun & Sheel hotel ,Mumbai where Koushambi's body was found on Monday afternoon.
“Generally in a murder case, the culprit tries to destroy evidence. In this case, however, everything was left behind. This is puzzling. When we interrogate Thakur, we'll try to address this question,” additional police commissioner Bipin Bihari told .
The autopsy report suggested Koushambi Layek was killed on Sunday night.Manish Thakur left the hotel room a couple of hours later, and till almost 15 hours after the murder, the hotel staff had no clue about the killing. If Thakur had planned the murder, he had ample time at his disposal to destroy evidence inside the room. But he did not do that, cops said.
“We are treating the case as one of murder, but we need to get answers to all these questions,” Bihari said.
The suicide theory has also gained weight because of information given by Layek's family, police said. Layek's family members were supposed to reach Mumbai on May 19 to take her back to their home in Dumka in Jharkhand since they had shortlisted some marriage proposals for her and wanted her to choose a groom soon.
Koushambi's cousin Kaushik Layek said that when the family members spoke to her about this on Sunday over the phone, she sounded depressed.
“She sounded very low and said she was tired of life,” the cousin said.
However, another question that is baffling the cops is that if it was indeed suicide, why did she get two bullet wounds instead of one?
The autopsy report has said Layek died of haemorrage due to two bullets from a prohibited bore firearm (a firearm that cannot be used to common people and is only available to police and the armed forces).
Police sources said there was no way Layek could have had access to a prohibited bore weapon unless Thakur had smuggled his service revolver from Goa, where he was undergoing training.
It is thus clear the weapon was brought by Thakur, police said.
A team of Mumbai police that reached Goa on Wednesday is expected to bring Thakur back to Mumbai today and produce him in a court. Naval spokesperson from Kochi, Manohar Nambiar, told Mumbai Mirror that Thakur has been handed over to Mumbai police.
