Guwahati: Investigation into the Gadapani Pathak murder appears to have gained momentum with the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) finally arresting the driver of the Bolero car from which the deceased was kidnapped with his subordinate engineer Faizul Islam.
Faizul Islam, who was released a few days back by the abductors, was also brought to Guwahati for inquiring.
The driver, Nur Islam, was yesterday arrested from Bongaigaon and afterwards remanded to seven days’ CID custody.
CID sources claimed that the prima facie evidences had pointed out towards the involvement of the driver in the kidnap and following killing of Pathak. The needle of suspicion has also been pointed towards executive engineer Faizul Islam, who might also be arrested, said the sources.
The sources said that “Questioning is on and very soon we should be able to come to the logical conclusion of the case. It is still very difficult to categorically state the real intent behind the crime.”
