THREE MURDERS that took place in the State capital within a span of four days are testing the skills of the investigators, as the police are yet to crack any of the cases.

The murders include that of a teenaged girl who was strangulated, a child whose body was recovered from the Upper Lake with his feet tied to a stone and a middle-aged auto-rickshaw driver who was found murdered near Misrod.

The police have not yet found any clues in any of the cases and are still groping in the dark. Sonal, 17, a student of Class XI, was found dead in mysterious circumstances in the bathroom of her house in Kamla Nagar police station area. Her head was inside a bucket filled with water.

Initially it was surmised that she died of electrocution but the post-mortem report confirmed that it was a murder. She had been strangulated with her ‘dupatta’. The murder came to light on March 3 but till date the police have no idea about the killer.

The next day the body of five-year-old Ajay Kushwaha was found near Khanu Gaon. The killer had tied his feet with stone so that the body could not come on surface early. The police have not made any headway in this case as well.

Then middle-aged Shafiq Qureshi was found strangulated to death with a wire near Hanuman Nagar on the Hoshangabad Road on March 8.

He was an auto-rickshaw driver. The police officials say that they have laid hands on certain clues in all the cases but the killers in these cases are far from their reach.
