The Kolkata police have already identified the accused. The accused youth, a resident of East Jadavpur, was identified as Abhishek Pandey. Police are searching for the accused.

However, the accused's mother claimed that Abhishek had a five-year relationship with the girl. According to police sources, there are many inconsistencies in the statement of the victim.

Moreover, on Tuesday (September 8) forensic experts examined the seized car and during sample collection, cops found several clothes from the car's trunk.

However, it is still not clear why the woman tried to mislead police about Pandey's identity and her relation with him. Investigating officials are keeping a tab on Pandey's relatives and friends in case he turns up anywhere to seek shelter.
