Probe into murder of 55-year-old man nears completion


Aizawl: Aizawl Police are making significant progress in the investigation of the murder of a 55-year-old man, whose body was discovered by ‘ghosthunters’ on June 30. The investigating officer is expected to submit the charge sheet to a district court in the near future.

Awaiting the results of tests conducted by the Forensic Science Laboratory, police are preparing the charge sheet against the two accused, Lalroliana, 43, and Lalsiampuii, 40, who are currently lodged in Central Jail.

A senior police official stated, “The investigation is almost completed, and the charge sheet will be prepared after receipt of the Forensic Science Laboratory report.”

The chilling discovery of the murder took place during a live-streamed ghost hunting expedition on YouTube. 

Two ‘ghost-hunting’ brothers, ventured into the jhumlands near the Tlawng River in Dihmunzawl, near Aizawl, on the night of June 30, when they stumbled upon the highly decomposed body of a man. The deceased was later identified as Vanlallawma, 55, a resident of Lunglei town in southern Mizoram.

Without delay, the brothers immediately contacted the Aizawl Police Station, providing crucial information about their finding. A prompt response from the police resulted in their swift arrival at the scene. Forensic examinations conducted later revealed indications of foul play, prompting the authorities to launch a comprehensive investigation.

Following an extensive manhunt, the police successfully apprehended two prime suspects – a man and a woman – near Seling village, located 45 kilometers east of Aizawl, at 1:00 pm on July 1. Both suspects have since confessed to the crime, according to police sources.

As the investigation enters its final stages, the Aizawl Police are determined to bring justice to the victim and ensure that those responsible are held accountable for their actions.
