Siva Prasad Ganjala filed the chargesheet at a court in Diphu. “The 844-page chargesheet is based on the case registered at the Dokmoka police station under 11 Sections of the IPC, including murder, wrongful restraint and obstructing public servants,” DGP Kuladhar Saikia said.A mob in Panjuri Kachari village under the Dokmoka police station had dragged sound engineer Nilotpal Das, 29, and his businessman friend Abhijit Nath, 30, out of their SUV and bludgeoned them to death. The adventure-loving friends were returning from the Kangthilangso waterfall, a picnic spot.Among the 48 arrested was Alphajoz Timung, a history-sheeter who had an argument with the duo at the waterfalls. He confessed to have misled the villagers into lynching the duo with the child kidnapper story.last_img read more
