Market complex owner, guard murderedAugust 1st, 2011 - 6:33 pm ICT by IANS
Agra, Aug 1 (IANS) The owner of a commercial complex and a guard were brutally murdered and a jewellery store at the complex was ransacked in Suraksha Vihar colony here early Monday, police said.
Police said while chowkidar Kailashi was brutally hit and thrown from the first floor of the commercial complex Abbas Market, its owner, 50-year-old Ramzani, was found strangulated and his hands and legs tied.
Sadar police station officials, who reached the site on a tip-off early in the morning called the field unit and dog squad but could find no clue till afternoon. The two men were mercilessly done to death, as was evident from their bodies which were sent for post-mortem examination, police said.
The shutter of the jewellery shop was found open and all the cash and other valuables were missing, police said.
Police suspect the murders were committed because the market owner had probably recognised the gang members. Ramzani, owner of the ten-shop market complex, used to sleep at the market, his family members told the police, while the chowkidar worked at the neighbouring cement godown but usually slept at the market.
