In a heinous incident, a 70 year-old man on Sunday brutally hacked to death with a ‘khukri’ after the culprit’s initial attempt at shooting him missed the mark.

The incident took place in Okkapara Songgitcham village in South West Garo Hills (SWGH) of Meghalaya.

As per the information, Kilman Ch Marak and Rajan M Marak had a long personal enmity mainly on allegations of Rajan practising witchcraft on Kilman.

Incidentally, the victim and the accused were relatives. Kilman initially tried to kill Rajan with a SBBL gun but missed him. The suspect was later caught by the villagers and handed over to the Garobadha investigation centre, under which Okkapara falls.

Meanwhile, the body of the victim was taken to Tura Civil Hospital where a post mortem is being done. “The accused, Kilman Marak, has been arrested,” said a police source.

Police later recovered both murder weapons and an investigation is currently on.
