Tutor films porn with girl, lynched

Burdwan: Seeing a local college girl in a porn CD, youths of her locality in Burdwan beat to death her private tutor — a 40-year-old married man who starred in the homemade film — inside a club on Wednesday. Police suspect Praloy Bhattacharjee was part of a nationwide blue film racket that lured small-town girls with money and sold the movies in other cities.

The CD was made a year back but made it to the Burdwan market a week ago. That is when locals identified the girl and all hell broke loose on her family and Bhattacharjee’s. He had been teaching college girls for the last 10-15 years and police are trying to find out if he made any more porn films. The owner of a video parlour where the film was allegedly edited and ‘mixed’ has been arrested. The investigation could involve police in metros and big cities of other states, said sources.

The girl, a final-year graduation student of a women’s college, has been detained at Burdwan police station along with her parents. Some reports said Bhattacharjee, a resident of Parbirhata locality, was attacked when he visited her home on Wednesday morning. But others said he was picked up from his home by some local youths, brought to a club in Chotonilpur, and beaten to death in a locked room.

Police said Bhattacharjee’s wife had stormed into the girl’s house with her daughter on Tuesday night and raised hell after she learnt of the CD. The ruckus spilled on to the street. Police picked up Bhattacharjee’s wife, the college girl and her mother but released all of them later.

The next morning, the tutor was seen at the girl’s doorstep at 7.30am. Local youths accosted him and a quarrel ensued.

The tutor was assaulted and dragged to Agrani Club, which was locked from outside. He was beaten brutally for a half hour before police managed to rescue him. He died on the way to Burdwan hospital.

The incident created a sensation in town. Police zeroed in on a video parlour and arrested its owner Krishna Ghosh and another suspect, Ujjal Saha — both residents of the girl’s locality. While Ghosh had edited the CD, Saha distributed it in several cities, say police. Ghosh’s sister said that he admitted to editing the CD a year ago, but did not know that it would be circulated and distributed as a blue film.

Police are trying to seize all the CDs in the market but it will involve police in other parts of the country as well.

Burdwan DSP (headquarters) Pankaj Mani confirmed that two persons have been arrested in connection with the CD but no one has been held for the lynching. A police picket has been posted in the area. Burdwan IC Subhasis Chowdhury said an FIR has been lodged for the murder.
