Gang stabs man to death

Sarlahi, January 23:

An armed gang killed Bishnu Mahato, 27, of Karmaiya-9 of Sarlahi last night.

Though Mahato initially escaped the attack and took refuge in his brother Kisnuji’s house, the gang got into the house saying that they had a personal business with him and stabbed in his throat, said Kisnuji. “They also detonated a bomb. My brother fell down after a shrapnel hit him,” he said.

He further added the gang fled after stabbing Bishnu in his chest.

“Devi Mahato alias Dwarika and Bishnu’s friend Kailash were involved in the killing,” Kisnuji said.

“We have arrested four suspected persons in connection with the killing,” inspector Bharat Bishwokrama at the Hariwan area police office said.
