BHUBANESWAR: The Commissionerate of Police, which secured a five-day extension in remand of the Dhal Samanta brothers, is confident of unravelling the Dipu Mallick murder which is key to nail the gangster siblings.
A Cuttack court on Monday granted the extension of custody of Sushant and Sushil to the police which now has its task cut out to make the most of the remand period. While it will conduct polygraph test of the duo over next few days, it will also confront them with fresh evidence in connection with the murder.
Twin City Police Commissioner YB Khurania said police have verified the information elicited from the brothers during interrogation and will now present the facts before them during next five days.
“We have got some important leads and are confident of getting to the bottom of what happened and how, in next few days,” Khurania said.
Police, which have detained a number of associates of the two gangsters, claim to have found some witnesses of the murder case. It is continuing raids at different places to round up more people so that a case can be built up.
The lie detection test would also come handy to the police in getting some more information about the murder and those involved in it.
Police are currently focusing on the Dipu murder case and would invest more time and resources in probing the illegal activities after the five-day remand is over.
The Police Commissioner reiterated his appeal to people who have been victims at the hands of the two brothers to come forward and lodge cases.
