2 killed in separate incidents in Tangla

A man's body was found hanging from the Nonai River Railway Bridge near Amtola chowk. Commuters noticed the body on the track around 5.30 am today, and informed police. The man's face bore injury marks. Though prima facie it appears to be a suicide, but post mortem would determine the man's exact cause and manner of death. The identity of the person has not been ascertained.

In another road accident last night at about 10.30 pm a staff of Tangla Civil Hospital, Dinesh Rabha died after his bike collided with a iron post near the SSB camp, Tangla. He was immediately rushed to the hospital but he succumbed to injuries.
