Police clueless about Muzaffar’s murder

Ahmadabad: The Sarkhej police have made little progress in the murder of Muzaffar Pathan, the 26-year old son of Badu Khan, a resident of Gomtipur. Muzaffar was attacked by four unidentified persons when he was riding a bike with his 30-year old girl friend Vandana Choksi. They were attacked with wooden sticks and metal pipes. Muzaffar sustained injuries on his head, back and chest, while Vandana had injuries on her head and back. There were several passers-by but they did not dare to intervene. A police jeep of state highway passed by Sheetal Bridge. The attackers took to heels immediately after seeing the jeep. The two were rushed to hospital but Muzaffar collapsed before any treatment could be administered to him. There are several versions about the incident which perplexed top police officers. A case against four unidentified persons has been registered on the basis of Vandana’s statement. She admitted of her love affair with the deceased. Police are pursuing the case from different angles. Police are also trying to recover mobile call details of the two persons. Muzaffar was the only son in a family of seven children. An eye-witness has dared to contact the police who suspect that Vandana was well-acquainted with the assailants.
