A team of CID officials visited the crime spot on Saturday, a day after the investigating agency was asked to join the investigation, the police said.

The triple murder had acquired political overtones on Thursday with the BJP and West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar hitting out at the Mamata Banerjee government over the killings and the RSS claiming that the teacher was its supporter. Bandhu Prakash Pal, a 35-year-old teacher, his pregnant wife Beauty and 8-year-old son Angan were found lying dead in pools of blood in their house at Jiaganj in Murshidabad district on Tuesday when Durga Puja festivities were on.

"We have detained two more persons in the case. A total of four persons have been detained, two has been let off after questioning," a senior police official said. Police had earlier in the week detained two persons in connection with the incident..
