Body found on business park in Hoorn indeed belongs to Sumanta Bansi | NOW

The human remains that were found on Tuesday at a business park in Hoorn belong to Sumanta Bansi. This is apparent from research by the Netherlands Forensic Institute (NFI), the Public Prosecution Service (OM) reported on Thursday.

The police made the discovery after Manodj B. confessed where he had hidden the pregnant student’s body. Research had to show whether the found remains were indeed Bansi’s. That part of the investigation has now been completed. The police and the Public Prosecution Service are still investigating the case. But “in the interest of the investigation”, they are not making any further announcements about this.

Bansi disappeared in February 2018 at the age of 22. In June of this year, 42-year-old B. from Hoorn was sentenced to fifteen years in prison for killing and disposing of the student’s body.

On Tuesday, B. was again interrogated by the police. That happened after an urgent call from The Telegraph and B.’s new lawyer, Theo Hiddema. Immediately after the interrogation, the detectives went to the business park in Hoorn together with B..

Bansi was living with B at the time of her disappearance. The Biomedical Sciences student was nine weeks pregnant with him at the time. B. would have killed her because the honor of his family would have been at stake because of that pregnancy. Bansi had to terminate a previous pregnancy under pressure from the host family.

Police have repeatedly searched for Bansi’s body. These searches mainly focused on the recreation area De Hulk in the North Holland city. Bansi’s body was not found at the time.
