Nagpur: Call it murderpur instead of Nagpur. The home town of Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis has certainly ranking high in the crime charts, and it would be better to tag Nagpur as the ‘murder’ capital instead of ‘winter’ capital of Maharashtra. The incidents of murder are marring Nagpur every fortnight. Yet another murder has baffled Nandanvan police when an identified body of a man was found dead in a field off Umred road on early Saturday morning.
Sources informed that the youth aged around 35 years was found wearing blue jean and blue shirt around 9 am on Saturday. A deep wound was inflicted on his head. Police sources speculated that he might have been attacked with a liquor bottle.
A Yamaha bike bearing number MH 36 A 9220 was also recovered from the crime spot.
Senior police officials from Nandanvan and Hudkeshwar police stations reached the spot and started the investigation. Cops are trying to first establish the identity of the deceased.
Cops scanning CCTV cameras for clue:
According to sources, cops are scanning CCTV cameras installed at Dighori Toll Post and hoping for a clue about accused person(s). Since the crime scene is near the Toll Post, the CCTV cameras might have captured images of the deceased and the accused the police are looking for.
Cops are also trying to establish the owner of the two-wheeler found near the body of murdered man. A Yamaha bike bearing number MH 36 A 9220 was found lying at the crime scene. Few bottles of liquor were recovered from the two-wheeler.
