Falakata girl alleged murder in Kolkata - Husband and in-laws absconded, help us find them

Monika Mandal from Falakata was married of to Subhankar Sarkar on 21st January 2016. Subhankar and his parents are from Gairkata and Subhankar's father runs a hardware store at Banarhat in Dooars.
Subhankar used to work in America and his father had assured that after marriage his son will stay with them in India.
After marriage Subhankar shifted to Kolkata with his wife as he had got a job there. As days went by the relationship between the duo were not getting well properly.
Monika used to call her family frequently and inform them that Subhankar has changed and does not behave like before.
As Subhankar came to know about the calls made by Monika to her family, he was not happy about it.
Monika used to work at Narayani school in Kolkata but Subhankar didn't want it, he forcefully made her quit the job. Monika was not allowed to go anywhere or talk to anyone. Subhankar had made her life miserable.
She wanted to go to meet her parents and also call them here but Subhankar would not allow this at all. Just after marriage once or twice when the duo went to Falakata, Subhankar would not allow Monika to sit at her family's place for more than an hour. He would take her immediately back to his house at Gairkata. Even on anniversary this year on 21st January 2017, her parents had come to wish her. The very next day they were sent back. Her parents wanted to stay but Subhankar had beforehand booked their train tickets for the day next.
Time went by and Monika's plea to go home went to deaf ears around the four corners of her house.
On 27 April, 2017 (6 days before) Monika's parents received a call from Subhankar's phone on which a lady spoke of Monika's death. Her parents were shocked as a while ago they had chatted and things looked normal.
Monika was found hanging in her room.
Soon later police were informed and her parents and in-laws reached together at Baguiati in Rajarhat, Kolkata, where Subhankar used to stay.
Prime facia of murder scene doesn't look like murder. Sources and family members informed ILS of the following:
1. The rope used to hang Monika had a knot in front, in suicide cases usually the knot would have been at the back.
2. Monika was well dressed with make-up, as if she was going out.
3. Her knees were bent backwards. After death as blood flow stops, the body gets hard and no body parts can be bent. The legs should have been sloping forward.
Police after seeing these and some more other evidences asked in-laws not to leave Kolkata before the post-mortem details arrive. But the very next day Subhankar and his parents fled and are untraceable.
The police have slapped charges against them under section's 498A/302/34 of the IPC (Fir no. 325/17 dated: 30/04/17) and all their bank accounts have been seized.
The postmortem report will be given on 5 to 6 May.
Been 5 days now, police are unable to trace them. Officers at Baguiati police station in Kolkata say "we are looking for them but not finding them," informed Monika's sister to ILS.
If anyone has seen him immediately contact 9734327001 or inform local police station.
PLEASE SHARE THIS POST WITH EVERYONE, MAYBE SOMEONE IN YOUR FRIEND LIST HAS SEEN THEM.
