Ashami (The accused)




Biswanath Halder
Case Western Reserve U

60 yr old in 2003







Nikhil Dhar
U. Mass Lowell
22 yrs old in 2005






Both are Bengalis. Both are from Kolkata. Both accused of culpable homicide. Both had a life centered largely on a university in USA. Both allegedly chose their victims from the university. But there is nothing else to connect them. The differences are overwhelming, based on the reports by the media. So similar, yet so different.

Update1: Something is odd. Biswanath got admitted to CWRU at the age of 58 for a MBA. Now, from whatever li'll I know of US Business Schools, thats like 30 years above the average age of a MBA class ! I'm surprised there is no mention of this not insignificant anomaly anywhere. Biswanath must have written some very compelling essays. What were in those essays ? Why did CWRU admit him ? Where are the admissions staff who admitted him ?

Hmmm! the first guy is definately a psycho. Read greatbong's blog. I'm still wondering why did the other person do it? He's so young!
