‘Eken Babu’ creator Sujan Dasgupta died of heart attack, says primary post mortem report | Bengali Movie News



Writer Sujan Dasgupta, best known for creating the popular Bengali fictional detective character ‘Eken Babu’, was found dead at his residence near EM Bypass in Kolkata on Wednesday.
According to reports, the veteran writer’s domestic help came to his house on Wednesday morning and started knocking on the door. She found it suspicious after receiving no response despite repeated knocking and reached out to the apartment’s security guard. Both tried to open the door but they failed.

Meanwhile, Sujan Dasgupta’s brother-in-law also reached and decided to inform the local police. When they finally opened the door, Sujan Dasgupta’s body was discovered lying on the floor in front of the washroom.
Dasgupta was rushed to the nearest Baghajatin state general hospital, where doctors declared him dead. Since the body was found in mysterious circumstances police started preliminary investigation and sent the body for post mortem. According to police, the primary post mortem report suggested that Sujan Dasgupta has died of heart attack.

As per reports, Dasgupta was alone at home as his wife went to Shantinekatan on Tuesday and their daughter lives is in the US. In fact, the writer used to live in the US for the last 50 years. He came to Kolkata in November last year before the release of the sixth season of Eken Babu web series based on a story penned by Dasgupta.

The eminent writer’s death has left everyone in shock. After hearing the news of Sujan’s death, a heartbroken Anirban Chakrabarti, who played Eken Babu in both the web series and big screen adaptation shared with ETimes, “I honestly don’t know what to say about this, I’m at a loss of words. Sujan Dasgupta is someone I owe a lot to. I am Eken Babu to a lot of people first and Anirban Chakrabarti second, and to think that the man behind that very character is no more just breaks my heart. Sujan Da, was someone who was extremely talented and witty, he used to often quip saying that he had imagined Eken Babu to look different on screen, but ever since I played the character, that’s how he visualises Eken Babu now. This statement shall always live on in my heart, as shall Sujan Da. I’ll deeply miss him.”
