§ SIR H. COTTON (Nottingham, E.)
I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for India whether he is able to give any official information regarding the murder of a Dacca student by his fellow students and the cause of this occurrence.
§ THE UNDER-SECRETARY OF STATE FOR INDIA (Mr. BUCHANAN,) Perthshire, W.
According to the information received by the Secretary of State, the murdered student was the principal witness in respect of a charge of kidnapping brought against the head of a political association, of which he was an ex-member. It is thought that his connection with this charge supplied the motive for the crime.
