In this small article, the true crime story of a fratricidal incident in Calcutta during the 1930s has been recollected. The story is notable for the very unusual murder weapon used by the criminals. (Since this is a story about colonial times, the names of various Indian cities, as used in this article, reflect the names used during the British rule.)
