Body of an assistant sub-inspector (ASI) was found on Friday morning at a stone mine area in Ranchi’s Tupudana, who appeared to have been killed with sharp weapon and thrown in the mine area, police said.
Superintendent of police (SP), Ranchi, Saurabh said, “Prima facie it appears that he was murdered with sharp weapon. However, the investigation is on and it will take few more times to clear.”

The ASI was identified as Kameshwar Ravidas, 50, and was deputed in security duty of Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS), where former Bihar chief minister Lalu Prasad, a convict in the fodder scam cases, is undergoing treatment.
