Stunt gone wrong- Since childhood, there was a passion for magic
Chanchal Lahiri lived in Subhashgram area of Sonarpur in South 24 Parganas district. There is a mother, wife and a son in the family. It was his attachment to the magic that when he was blindfolded, he would have been able to open his hands and feet with a river and then able to come out of his way. He has done many such dangerous acts before. In 1998, he locked in the box and come out from the river. This act gave him fame not only in the state but also in the whole country. On the basis of his countrywide identity, he started showing magic to different parts of the country.

Chanchal’s colleagues tied his hands and legs with iron chains and thick rope. After tying his entire body with long chains, two claws were rooted. With the help of a crane, he was thrown into the water of the Ganges river with the help of a rope. After entering the river’s water, it felt that he would be seen out of water in a while.
Though 10 minutes passed, the anxiety of the people present there started rising. It was immediately informed to the police. The team of River Police first gathered in search of him.
