A 25-year-old man identified as one ‘I Love You’ Talang, wanted in kidnapping, murder and hijacking of vehicles has been arrested, police said today.
Talang and three of his accomplices -Ramesh Dkhar, Tellme Pyrtuh alias Bor and Sampher Ksoo – were arrested on charges of kidnapping and murder of two cab drivers in West Jaintia Hills district recently.
The four murder accused were arrested on Wednesday after police first nabbed their ring leader Talang from Mawryngkneng village in East Khasi Hills district.
During the preliminary interrogation, Talang allegedly confessed that he along with his three other accomplices had kidnapped and murdered Damehipaia Papeng, a cab driver who went missing on August 10, by slitting his throat.
Talang led the police to the place where he had dumped the dead body of Papeng near a cattle market in Mukoi Mihmyntdu, near the Jowai Bypass on theNH-06, a police official said.
Police also suspected that Talang and his gang was also involved in the kidnapping and murder of another tourist cab driver Fullmoon Kharsahnoh.
The body of Kharsahnoh was found in suspicious circumstances in Mynkre, East Jaiñtia Hills last week.
Meanwhile, the court has remanded the four accused to 14 days police custody.
