Accused in Bicholim murder case nabbed


Bicholim police on Thursday arrested Amal, 25, for allegedly murdering his junior co-worker John, 28, at Dodamarg, Bicholim, on Monday. Both are from Jharkhand and were working in the guest house owned by CaridadeRodrigues at Dodamarg.
Amal told police that he killed John by slitting his throat with a knife out of jealousy, as the deceased was in good books with the owner of the guest house. After the murder the accused was absconding.
On Thursday, when police were informed that the accused was hiding at Bharipwada Collem, a police team left for Collem and arrested the accused while he was about to leave Goa. The accused was later taken to the spot where he committed the crime and his blood stained clothes were also recovered by police. [TOI]
