Tension ran high when a man was murdered and his body found on a ‘Haath Thela’ (Hand cart) in front of New Fashion Tailors near Gokulpeth Fish Market on Friday. The body bore deep wounds on head and face most probably caused by heavy stones. A 19-year old youth has been arrested in this connection.
News of the murder spread like a wild fire and a large number of people thronged the spot in quick time. Meanwhile, Ambazari police too were informed about the incident and a team of policemen immediately reached the spot. The deceased has been identified as Rama Tukaram Chaudhari (45), resident of Futala Slums, Nagpur. According to reports, Rama Chaudhari was a labour. However, cops are still groping in the dark over reason behind the gruesome murder. An offence of murder has been registered under Section 302 of the IPC. Police have taken a 19-year old suspect Shubham Ramesh Chauragade, resident of Nandanvan Slums, into custody and are questioning him for any clues.
Meanwhile, after completing the preliminary enquiry, police have sent body of Rama Chaudhari to Government Hospital for post-mortem and investigating the matter further.
