Indore : Two persons were murdered with sharp- edged weapons in separate attacks in the city. The city police’s efforts to maintain law and order seems to have come to naught as criminals are having field day with loot, murder, stabbing and other serious crimes being committed at their will.

The first incident occurred at Teen Imli Square under Bhavarkuan Police Circle where a rickshaw driver was stabbed to death. Although the police have registered the case and are investigating, the reason for murder is not yet known. However, two suspects have been identified and a search is on to nab them.

According to Bhawarkuwa Police, the deceased has been identified as Raju adav ( 39), a resident of Triveni Nagar.

Raju was stabbed by unidentified persons at Teen Imli Square and was rushed to hospital by his family members where doctors declared him brought dead.

CSP Shashikant Kankane said that the reason for his murder is not yet known. However, the police have identified two suspects, Hari and Nimu, and a search is on to nab them. There were no eyewitnesses to the murder, but it is likely that the murder may be a result of an old dispute, Kankane added.

Raju’s wife Sunita alleged that her husband was lying in a pool of blood for long time but none rendered any assistance.

“ Timely medical assistance could have saved my husband’s life,” she said.

Sunita further said that someone informed her about the incident and she rushed to the spot followed by her brother- in- law. They rushed Raju to M Hospital but it was late.

The second incident occurred in Azad Nagar where motorcycle borne miscreants attacked two youths with sharp edged weapons, leaving one of them dead and other seriously wounded. According to Azad Nagar Police, two youths were admitted to M Hospital with serious injuries around 1.00 am.

They were brought from Hussaini Chowk in Azad Nagar and have been identified as Imran ( 28) and Ajju, residents of Kohinoor Colony. Imran died during treatment around 7 am.

They were returning home after attending a wedding function when the unidentified men attacked them with sharp- edged weapons at Hussaini Chowk. The reason for the attack is not yet known. It is believed that Imran possibly knew the attackers, but he died before police could record his statement. Now the police are awaiting Ajju to regain consciousness to get some clue on the attack.
