Two rape-murders in Assam train by same duo, caught before committing 3rd crime
Dibrugarh: Two criminals arrested by the special investigation team of the Assam police in connection with the murders of two women inside train toilets on successive days have confessed to their crimes.
On July 10, a 19-year-old girl was found murdered in one of the toilets of the Dibrugarh-Rangiya Express at Simaluguri junction. Barely 30 hours later, another woman was found murdered in a toilet of the Avadh Assam Express on the same route at Mariani junction.
Upon interrogation, it has come to light that the two victims were raped by the duo before being murdered. Prime accused Bikash Das was, in fact, planning to commit a third murder on a different train before he was arrested by a railway protection force constable at Tinsukia railway station on Thursday morning. The second accused Bipin Pandey was nabbed from Dibrugarh station on Friday. Pandey has told the police that he indulged in sex with the corpses of the victims.
