Two arrested for murdering woman vendor

Shillong, Oct 6 (UNI) Meghalaya police have arrested two persons for their alleged involvement
in the murder of a 36-year-old woman in down-town Shillong.
Sarmaston D Sangma, who was working as a cook in Step-In restaurant was nabbed today for murdering a roadside vendor Anjana Singha on September 3.
His arrest followed after the arrest of Jacky S Marak of Athiabari in West Khasi Hills yesterday.
Sangma robbed her mobile and cash of about Rs 2,000.
The mobile phone of the Singha and the knife used to commit the murder has been recovered from Sangma’s erstwhile work place at Golden Gate Restaurant.
According to the police, Singha, a street food vendor for the past 12 or 13 years went to keep
her cooking table near the Power house on the rear road leading to Lady Keane College,
Shillong while her ailing husband Suresh Singha had waited for her at Khyndailad.
After 30 minutes of her not returning, he went looking for her near the Power house where her table was kept. There he found her shawl and slipper on the ground. On further searching, he
found the body of his wife 30-40 feet on the ground close to the rear gate leading to Lady Keane College.
Her throat was found slit open with several cut injuries on her body. She was immediately
rushed to Civil Hospital, Shillong by 108 Ambulance but was declared brought dead. An FIR
was submitted by her husband Suresh Sinha on September 3 at Sadar Police Station.
