Kolkata (West Bengal): Following a brutal murder incident at the entrance of Chandannagar Sub-Divisional Hospital, the police have taken stringent measures to ensure security in the area. In this connection, the police have arrested five accused individuals. According to sources, Supriya Santara, a resident of Bhadrashwar, was brutally beaten to death by a group of people in front of the hospital gate on Tuesday. The incident led to tension in the hospital premises, but the police later came and controlled the situation.

Supriya's family filed a complaint with the Chandannagar Police Station, which led to the arrest of five people, including a woman.
