Woman fakes estranged husband’s death
A woman who tried to “fake” her husband’s death in the Balasore train accident for compensation cash announced by the state government and Railways is in trouble. Gitanjali Datta of Maniabanda in Cuttack district had claimed that her husband Bijay Datta had died in the accident on June 2 and had even identified a body as her husband’s.
