Two held for Hassan Khan’s murder


Panaji resident Robert Gonsalves and Calangute contractor Raj Patel, alias Abhinandan, were arrested by Agasaim police in connection with the murder of Hassan Khan.
Police said Gonsalves, currently under suspension from the directorate of mines and geology, was advising Khan in real estate deals and few days before the murder the two had had a fight. Police said a JMFC court has granted them custody of the two accused for seven days.
Police said a team headed by Panaji PI Rajandra Prabhudesai has left the state in search of two contract killers who were instrumental in killing Khan. Police interrogated seven persons close to Hassan and on Saturday night arrested the two accused.
Two persons had visited Khan's garage on Thursday night on the pretext of purchasing his car. They had taken the car for a test drive and Khan had accompanied them. Khan's body was later found in his car at Bambolim the same night. [TOI]
