To ask the Under-Secretary of State for India whether he can give the House any information regarding the assassination of the Bengali detective Nundo Lal Bannerjee; whether this is the man who traced the anarchist who threw the bomb which killed Mrs. and Miss Kennedy; and whether the murderers have been apprehended.

The murder was witnessed by a number of shopkeepers, who state that the murderers were two young Bengalees. A reward of Rs. 5,000 has been offered. No arrests have yet been made. The murdered man was the officer who traced Profulla Chaki, one of the perpetrators of the Muzzaffarpur outrage, to Mokaneh railway station, where Profulla shot himself to avoid arrest.
