Assam: Cops Apprehend Four Robbers in Tinsukia, Two More Absconding
Two other suspects remain at large as the operation to nab them continues.
TINSUKIA: In a successful operation conducted by Tinsukia Police in Assam during the night of Thursday, four individuals linked to a recent robbery in Pengeri were apprehended, while two others remain at large. The gang responsible for the Wednesday robbery saw four of its members captured by the police.
The arrested individuals have been identified as Bijul Maran, Ratneshwar Baruah, and Santosh Lama, but efforts are ongoing to locate and detain the two remaining suspects from the gang.
During the raid, the police confiscated several incriminating materials used during the robbery, including two handmade firearms, a sickle, and a sum of Rs 70,000 in cash.
Tinsukia Police's swift and effective action has resulted in the detention of the alleged culprits and the recovery of stolen property. The investigation continues to track down the remaining suspects and gather additional details about the incident.
In another shocking act of theft in broad daylight, a bold bike-borne thief targeted Guwahati's recently inaugurated Nilachal flyover, making off with numerous lights that adorned the structure. Guwahati's Nilachal flyover, inaugurated just last month, had boasted state-of-the-art lighting installations that illuminated the structure at night, impressing both local residents and authorities. However, the audacious act of theft left the community stunned.
A resident captured the thief's brazen act on video, showing the biker deftly dismounting a light fixture and loading it onto his motorcycle. Sources indicate that the contractor responsible for the flyover had initially installed 1,300 lights during its inauguration, but a startling 600 of them have already been stolen. In response to the thefts, a formal complaint was lodged, leading to the subsequent arrest of three suspected thieves by the police.
Nevertheless, this recent incident of theft underscores the ongoing challenge of deterring such criminals in the area. In other news, the Lakhimpur Medical College and Hospital (LMCH) authority has sacked a total of 70 home guard personnel from discharging duties in the medical institution by making them totally jobless. The anti-employment decision taken by the LMCH authority in this regard seems to be a cheer mockery to the Chief Minister, who declared that the home guard personnel of Lakhimpur and Dhemaji districts would be engaged in the said medical institution so that they could earn the bread for their families. But the latest move taken by the LMCH authority has made the Chief Minister’s declaration utterly meaningless.
