Mapusa jeweller’s murder case sent to crime branch


The police department on Wednesday transferred the Kamaxi jewellers murder case to the crime branch for further investigation, said deputy inspector general (DIG) of police O P Mishra.
Chief minister Manohar Parrikar, who is also home minister, mentioned in the assembly on Tuesday that the Kamaxi jeweler murder case would be handed over to the crime branch.
In September 2012, Kamaxi jewellers store owner Ratnakar Raikar was killed and nearly 3 kg gold stolen, from his shop in Mapusa.
Mapusa police, investigating the case, have failed to identify and arrest the accused. They had also declared a reward of 25,000 to those providing information or clues leading to the arrest of those involved. [TOI]
