A businessman named Avdesh Yadav was shot dead in Guwahait’s Chatribari last month.

Yadav was shot dead by unidentified bike-borne assailants near his residence.

He was shot in the chest three times at a point-blank range.

Locals questioned the police on how could people roam around with arms despite so many check posts and operations across the city.

The police following the incident detained at least three persons from Assam but none of them was found to be linked with the killing.

Then based on inputs, they tracked the prime suspects of the murder in Bihar.
