2 B’deshi bike thieves lynched in Garo Hills
TURA: Two Bangladeshi nationals were beaten to death by an angry mob after they were spotted stealing a motorcycle in the border village of Sibbari, South Garo Hills, early Friday morning.
A four-member gang of Bangla nationals reportedly crossed into Indian territory during the early morning hours of Friday. They managed to take out the motorcycle from a house at Sibbari Chambil village and were pushing it away when villagers spotted them and gave chase.
Two of the intruders managed to flee on the motorcycle towards the border while their other two accomplices were caught after a hot chase and lynched by the angry villagers.
Police have recovered the bodies.
“The gang are Bangladeshi Garos and we suspect that the bike may have been taken across the border since villagers spotted them heading in that direction when they gave chase,” informed district police chief Lakador Syiem.
Medical store owner kidnapped: Meanwhile, a medical store owner has remained untraced for the last three days since his reported abduction from the heart of Mahendraganj town in South West Garo Hills district.
Medical store owner Shankar Barman (40), a father of two children, was returning home from his store at around 10 pm when he was abducted not far from his place of dwelling at Kumarkatti locality.
When his family members and neighbours went searching for him they found his scooter abandoned near a culvert.
It is believed that he may have resisted the abductors and put up a fight as his muffler scarf and slippers were found next to the scooter.
A nearby paddy field was also disturbed indicating that the abductors may have taken him through the rice field towards the Bangladesh border.
