Beltola Double Murder Case: How Caretaker Akash Tried To Mislead Police Investigation? Read All Details
Guwahati: In a major revelation to the Beltola double murder case incident, Guwahati police has informed that after a thorough investigation, it was learned that the prime accused Akash Choudhury had tried to conceal the actual facts by claiming it to be a house break-in incident.
Speaking to the media in this regard on Wednesday, CP Harmeet Singh said, “Firstly, there was no sign of house break-in, whereas, the accused tried to conceal the actual facts by claiming it to be a house break-in incident. We have checked every door, every window, every ventilator, but found nothing regarding any forced entry inside the residence of Noni Gopal Baruah. Accused had entered the house with the help of a key at the backyard.”
CP Singh also mentioned that the accused had tried to mislead the police investigation by showing the grill in the house was broken from outside.
“Interesting part is, the grill was not broken from outside, rather it was broken from inside the house. Moreover, the scuff marks and the broken door frames were all spotted inside the house. The grill was broken after the murder incident. This is a scientific investigation; hence a culprit cannot escape. We have also found several fingerprints on window seals matching with accused Akash. So it is quite clear that Akash was directly involved in the case,” added CP Singh.
Earlier, in a joint operation by the Guwahati police, Crime Branch and Assam CID, caretaker Akash Choudhury was arrested by police in connection with the ghastly murder of an elderly couple on Tuesday morning.
The police had also detained Choudhury’s wife as suspects in the murders of the elderly couple.
Two more other suspects namely Satyendra Singh and Paresh Choudhury had also been detained for interrogation.
The elderly couple, Noni Gopal Baruah (87) and Mina Baruah (76) were killed in their own residence in Guwahati’s Beltola area.
Reportedly, a grinding stone was used during the attack.
Both of the victims were found dead on a bed in the morning hours.
It may also be mentioned that Akash was booked in Basistha PS case no 3900/21 under section 458/380/302 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
