    Guwahati: The ongoing investigation into the murder of one 53-year-old school teacher at Kalaigaon in Udalguri district has hinted that her husband and the key accused in the case, Upendra Baruah, had allegedly planned the murder and executed it with the help of the others.

    At least four persons including Baruah were arrested by state police on Sunday.

    LR Bishnoi, additional director general of police, Assam CID, said, “Arrested accused Upendra Baruah, Hirakjyoti, Smt. Joshoda Rabha and Nawazir Hussain are now in 7 days remand. Questioning will reveal more.”
