Guwahati: Two Suspects Identified In Kumarpara Shootout Case
GUWAHATI: The police have declared two men in connection with Kumarpara shootout case as most wanted.
The police authorities are currently conducting investigation in the matter and have zeroed in on two suspects from the CCTV footage from the day when the crime took place.
The incident occurred on September 12 when the victim identified as Shyam Sharma was shot by unknown miscreants in Athgaon area of the city.
The deceased was rushed to a hospital where he succumbed to his injuries the same evening.
“The gang entered the office posing as customers and asked for Shyam as they wanted to settle some pending dues,” police sources said. As soon as the employee identified himself as Shyam, the unidentified gang shot him. The initial investigation, according to police sources, indicates that it might be a contract killing.
In what could be a possible case of mistaken identity, the first name of the owner of the establishment and Shyam Sharma’s employer is also Shyam and therefore there could have been a misunderstanding whereby the employee was killed, the police suspect.
