Unidentified miscreants shot dead a well-known liquor businessman Mulsingh Rathore at Khatkhati, Assam on June 23 at around 8.30 p.m. Saturday. 

According to a delayed report, police informed that, a gang of around six to seven masked men in camouflage and armed with AK 47 rifle and pistol stormed inside the residence of Rathore. They then held his wife, son and daughter-in-law at gunpoint to commit robbery. 

 Rathore rushed home on receiving a distress call from his son. The gang had robbed valuables including jewellery  and cash from his residence. 

As he entered his home, Rathore was shot several times from close range and later succumbed to injuries following excessive haemorrhage on reaching the hospital.

“We have recovered one abandoned vehicle at the vicinity of the place of incident and some other clues. Investigation is continuing based on evidence and intelligence input,” SP Karbi Anglong Gaurav Upadhya said.

Police also recovered empty cases of AK ammunition and several cartridges of other calibre ammunition from the spot. The gang also reportedly took away the licensed pistol of the businessman. Police are probing on what appears to be a carefully planned robbery and possible involvement of some insider who may have provided crucial inputs to the gang. 

 Two of the businessman’s employees were also seriously injured in the shooting.
