GUWAHATI: In a gripping turn of events in Bilasipara, Assam's Dhubri district, the tranquility of the night was shattered by gunshots as law enforcement launched a high-stakes operation against a murder suspect. The protagonist of this midnight drama was Ali Akbar, the alleged perpetrator of a heinous crime that claimed the life of a young entrepreneur back in May, sending shockwaves through Ward 8 of Char Chapori.
The meticulously planned operation was orchestrated under the command of the Sub-Divisional Police Officer (SDPO) and the Office In-Charge of Bilasipara Police Station. Armed with confidential information pinpointing Akbar's whereabouts in the Machpara area, the police aimed to apprehend him discreetly. However, it appeared that the accused was privy to the unfolding operation, as he received a timely tip about the imminent police action. Acting swiftly, Akbar attempted to elude the law enforcement team by navigating through agricultural paths adjacent to the river.
Upon visual confirmation of Akbar, the police, determined to thwart his escape bid, resorted to the use of firearms, firing a total of seven rounds in his direction. Despite the barrage of bullets, Akbar displayed remarkable agility, managing to evade injury and vanish into the night. Undeterred by his initial escape, the police intensified their efforts to locate the elusive suspect.
In a dramatic twist, Akbar's luck took a downturn as he was eventually cornered in the shallow waters near the site of the initial confrontation. The culmination of an exhaustive manhunt led to his apprehension, and he was promptly transported to the Bilasipara police station. Legal proceedings were set in motion, marking the beginning of a judicial reckoning for the accused.
The town of Bilasipara was left buzzing with speculation and intrigue as the details of the midnight operation unfolded. The resilience of the police force, the suspect's narrow escape, and the eventual capture created an atmosphere of suspense and anticipation, leaving the community reflecting on the thin line between justice and evasion.
