Once again, the news of a murder being committed in broad daylight has surfaced from Siliguri. This time, the incident took place in Shaheed Colony of Ward 35, Siliguri Municipality and the victim was a 27 years old man named Pintu Shill.
It has been found that Shill had left his house in the morning to go to the work. His neighbour, Manojeet Das, suddenly attacked him with a bladed weapon and slashed his throat entirely. Shill died on the spot.
Manojeet fled from the site, but the New Jalpaiguri police nabbed him at Netaji More with the murder weapon still in his possession. He confessed to the crime soon after.
Prima facie states that Manojeet attacked Shill over a family dispute. Shill’s body has now been sent to the North Bengal Medical College and Hospital. An investigation has commenced in the case.
