GUWAHATI: Following a successful operation, police were able to recover the pistol used by Saurav Goena to shoot Anjan Nath dead from the Bharalu River in the city on Tuesday.
A team from the Basistha Police Station under the East Guwahati Police District along with personnel from the State Disaster Response Force (SDRF) mounted an operation to recover the pistol used by Saurav Goenka. The police team took Saurav Goenka along on this search operation and was finally able to recover the same from the river. The police team also found the magazine used by the shooters along with the pistol during this operation.
Saurav Goenka, with the help of Gitashree Sinha, had shot dead Anjan Nath near the Ganesh Mandir in Khanapara in a well-planned plot. The police arrested seven people, including the parents and sister of Gitashree Sinha and two other accomplices, for committing and collaborating in this murder. The country-made pistol used by Saurav Goenka to shoot Anjan Nath from point blank range, and recovered today was smuggled to Guwahati from Bihar for this murder.
The murder was a result of love and deceit as Gitashree Sinha, who was the lover of the victim Anjan Nath, along with her family members plotted to murder him in cold blood. The shooter Saurav Goenka was also romantically involved with Gitashree Sinha and decided to carry out the murder himself.
