Search for the suspect in the murder of an unidentified person (last month) in Nuvem has led a team from Maina Curtorim police station to Jharkhand. The hilly area in Jharkhand is known to be a hotbed of Naxal activity.
The police managed to track down the house of the accused but he managed to give the police team a slip. The police are undertaking combing operations with the help of local police and village heads to arrest the accused but maintaining precaution to avoid a face off with the Naxal.
Police sources have shown confidence in catching the accused. They claim that the accused is present in Jharkhand but has gone into hiding after learning the police are tracking him.
Police hope to identify the victim once the accused is arrested by them. The victim’s body is currently lying unclaimed in the morgue. It is assumed by the police that the accused murdered the victim after a fight over a petty issue after a drinking binge.
