Innova seized at Teok 'not guilty' in hit-and-run case
The police on Saturday detained a White colour Toyota Innova car at Teok, Jorhat, suspecting its connection with the hit-and-run case of Bhupinder Singh, manager of a city based restaurant. Later based on the claims of eyewitnesses, it was confirmed that it was not the same vehicle.
With the sluggish progress in the police investigation on the hit-and-run case in which Bhupinder Singh was mauled to death by a speeding vehicle, the family members of the deceased have chipped in with
a cash reward of Rs 2 lakhs for identifyng the culprit.
Along with that, Guwahati Police on Monday announced a cash reward of Rs 50,000 to anyone who helps the police with valid information about the culprits.
Alleging police negligence, a family member of the victim said, “It’s very unfortunate that the police have failed to nab the culprits. The murderers have been roaming scot free and we demand immediate action. Despite tall claims of the police officials of trying their best to trace the car, due to the delayed process, we feel that the culprits have evaded by now. So, we are now calling upon the public to help us find the car and arrest the culprit.”
