Indian-American researcher Sharmishtha Sen was a pharmacist and researcher who studied molecular biology and was working for cancer patients. She was originally from Sindri in Jharkhand (Jharkhand) and settled in Plano after her marriage to Arindam Roy.
On Saturday morning, members of the local community gathered at Chisholm Trail Park to pay tribute to Sen. She organized a memorial race at the same place where she used to frequent and took the same path to the park where she was jogging on the day of the murder. A friend of Sen said, “She has definitely left her mark and that’s why we are all here today to remember her.” In the afternoon, a large number of people gathered to show respect to Sen and his family. The police arrested the 29-year-old youth on the same day of Sen’s murder in the same area on charges of theft. According to police, Barkari is a suspect in the murder of Moncrif Sen but charges have not been framed on him at present.
