Rape-murder accused caught
The Jamunamukh police probing the recent gangrape and murder of a teacher arrested a youth on Thursday. Sources told Assam Times that acting on an input by a minor boy, police arrested Selimuddin, a local resident in thus connection. Other perpetrators are on the run.
“A senior team of police investigators has been interrogating Salimuddin and search operation is on to nab the other perpetrators. Beyond that we can't divulge anything right now,”said a police officer in Jamunamukh.
The incident sends no less shock and anger in the entire area where thousands of people hit the streets on Thursday dinning immediate arrest and capital punishment of the miscreants who gangraped and murdered the teachers before dumping the body on the river Kopili.
The gruesome incident took place a month after a girl was gangraped and killed on her way back to home at Boithalangsu in West Karbi Anglong district where the main culprit is still on the run.
