Sonapur killings probe fails to make headway

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, March 4 � The investigation into the gruesome Sonapur killings seemed to have lost its track with the Criminal Investigation Department probing the incident apparently failing to solve the jigsaw surrounding the mysterious murders even after several months have passed.

The CID though had arrested two of the accused in this case a couple of months back, it reportedly could not cash in on the statements given by the duo.

While the investigation agency had earlier linked the land mafia with the killings, it, however has failed to crack the whip on the persons involved, whom it claimed to have identified.

The investigation process, according to sources, was also hit after Superintendent of Police (CID) D Malakar, who was entrusted to supervise the investigation, was transferred. The post of SP (CID) is yet to be filled.

The investigation officer of the case Dilip Dutta, when contacted, however, refused to divulge anything in this connection, though he said that no breakthrough has been effected since the arrest of two of the accused.

A senior police official, when asked, however, stated that the case is a complicated one and it may take some time before the logical conclusion is drawn.
