Police solves blind murder case, arrests two in Leh

LEH, Sept 12:

Jammu and Kashmir Police has claimed to solve a blind murder case by arresting two accused, both residents of Bihar, in this border town in Ladakh.
A police spokesperson today said that Police Post Housing Colony Leh received information on September 8 that one person, identified as Dhan Bhadur Khatri, resident of Nepal, has been killed in a rented room at New Bus stand near maxi cab union office.
“On receipt of this information, police parties from Police Station Leh and PP Housing Colony registered a case and immediately started investigations,” he said.
The teams succeeded in arresting two accused persons who were about to flee from Leh. They were identified as Lalu Sah and Raja Babu, both residents of Bihar, electricians by profession, he said.
During further questioning, the main accused Lalu Sah revealed that the victim used to get water for the tenants and clean the rooms for petty amounts. On that fateful night, they planned a party together and all got drunk where a scuffle took place amongst them due to some money owed to the deceased, he said.
The police said the main accused Lalu got agitated and hit the victim on his head with hammer and Karanti, killing him on spot. “The accused later fled away from the scene of crime,” he said.
He said while investigating the case, weapons of offence were recovered and seized by the Leh police in presence of Magistrate.
The owner of the guest house had not maintained any record of the tenants and didn’t have any antecedents of the tenants due to which it became really hard for the police teams to identify the accused. (UNI)
