Mystery shrouds death

Shillong, Nov. 20: The recovery of the body of 32-year-old Asterwell Kharbuli from a fishery pond in Risa Colony here last evening has given rise to speculations about the cause of death.

Kharbuli was a resident of Malki locality here.

While police claim it was a suicide, a few residents have other views.

According to the police, Kharbuli jumped into the fishery pond near St Edmundís College in Risa Colony here around 4pm on Saturday. But eyewitnesses said he was taking a walk with his wife before the incident and that they had not noticed anything unusual.

An eyewitness from Risa Colony said while Karbuli was giving way to a truck, his shawl had got stuck on the truckís body and added that he could not have drowned in the pond as there was not much water in it.

No breakthrough

Police are clueless about the murder of a person, who was charred to death along with his vehicle on November 14 near the Post Graduate Teachers College in Shillong.

The police, however, had identified the victim as Durga Bahadur Sunar, the driver of the vehicle.
