Even though the police have not clarified the identity of the accused apprehending that it would create hindrances in the probe, police sources said that detailed address of the murderer has been identified.
“We have left no stone unturned to find details of the murder during the probe and I hope that we will nab the accused soon,” said Twin City Police Commissioner Satyajit Mohanty.
Surprisingly, police investigation has revealed some interesting facts behind the murder. According to the police, the murderer has a penchant for women’s garments.
It may be noted that a youth was found dead with deep injury marks near Ranihat Bridge on Tuesday morning. Later, two bodies, one from near SCB Medical College and another from neighbouring OMP market, were recovered on Wednesday morning. Interestingly, the throats of all the three bodies were slit and their heads were found to be smashed with a heavy object.
