Police zeroing in on organised group

By Staff reporter

GUWAHATI, Oct 11 � Under pressure owing to the recurring instances of shootout in Guwahati, Assam Police today claimed to have zeroed in on an organized group suspected to be behind the recent killings in the capital city.

As the intention is to earn quick money, the group, mostly targets the business community, Superintendent of Police (City) Deepak Choudhury told The Assam Tribune today.

"We have stumbled upon clues which have indicated towards involvement of an organized group behind the shootout cases. We are trying to track down the group but we still do not have pinpoint information about it," Choudhury asserted.

The SSP further informed that the manhunt to nab the culprits is on and very soon they will be brought to book.

Guwahati, of late, has witnessed a spurt in the number of shootout cases mostly of identical nature. The latest incident happened last night when unidentified miscreants opened fire at a businessmen brother duo at Fatasil Ambari leading to the death of one on the spot and bullet injury to the other. The miscreants also took away a bag carrying a sizeable amount of cash and jewellery.

The recent shoot-outs have also exposed the law enforcing agencies� utter failure to control open movement of illegal arms in the capital city.

The group, according to Choudhury, moves with arms and hits the target after monitoring his movements and habits from close quarters.

�During Puja days too, there were some desperate attempts made by miscreants which we managed to foil. Some arrests were also made in those connection,� he said, adding that security in and around the city has been reviewed and necessary measures have been taken in the wake of last night's incident.

"These people first get themselves employed in the vicinity and monitor the target's movements. After closely following the movements for a few days, they wait for the right time to hit," the SSP pointed out.

Earlier today, the local residents resorted to a road blockade for several hours in Fatasil Ambari demanding speedy inquiry into last night's killing of Sanjoy Basak.

Some of them even demanded a judicial inquiry into the killing.
