Unidentified Body Recovered from Basistha in Guwahati
The number and magnitude of crimes are on a rapid rise in the city.
GUWAHATI: In a shocking incident, an unidentified dead body of a man was recovered on the morning of Thursday from the city.
The body of a man was discovered by the local people who later called the police. The incident was reported from the Basistha region of the largest city of Northeast India. The exact location of the discovery has been mentioned as Lane Number 12 at Kinara Kata of Basistha.
Few reports suggest that the incident was the result of a fight. Unknown assailants murdered the person and left his dead body at the location.
Several items were recovered from the vicinity of the body by the police. But the identity details of the deceased have not been ascertained yet. The police had sent the body for necessary post mortem procedures and an enquiry has been started regarding the matter.
Another body was recovered from the Basitha region of the city towards the end of September. The deceased was identified as Sushanta Majumdar, a man in his fifties. With bruise marks on his head, the people and police suspected murder. The investigation on this matter is still ongoing.
In the month of August, a semi-decomposed body of a man in his thirties was recovered from under the bridge on the Bharalu River located in the Rupnagar Region. Located near the ASTC workshop in the area, the place becomes empty by night time. Reports suggest that someone had killed the person somewhere else and dumped the body under the bridge.
The number of such unidentified bodies are on the rise in the city. Most of them are believed to be cases of robbery by the police. Alcohol and narcotics induced fights are also suspected to be among the key reasons, although no conclusive evidence have been found in this regard. But the main area for concern is the rabid rise in the number of crime in the city.
