Four from Assam held in murder case



Four labourers hailing from Assam were arrested from Margao in Goa for allegedly killing a 26-year-old man after a drunken brawl at a beach, police said on Tuesday.

"They were picked up from Margao railway station on Monday evening when they were trying to flee," a Goa Police spokesperson told reporters.

He said the four accused recently killed Khegan Nath, who also hailed from Assam and was a migrant labourer, at Velsao beach in south Goa after they all consumed alcohol during a picnic.

Police identified the four suspects as Dulal Das (27), Manash Nath (25), Manash Das (25) and Ridip Das (23), the spokesperson said. (PTI)
