Security guards arrested for killing advocate

 The East Division police on Monday claimed to have cracked the murder of an advocate at his flat in Whitefield, by arresting two security guards of the apartment complex where he resided.

Amardeep Kainth, 53, was found dead at his second floor flat on February 7. Kainth hailed from Himachal Pradesh and was residing alone in the flat for the past two years. He was a legal advisor for multinational companies and had married a German national.

Kainth’s body was found with gaping wounds on the head and the house was ransacked. Going by the scene of the crime it was evident that it was a murder for gain as some valuables were missing. Police suspected that a theft bid at the house went awry ending up in the murder of Kainth.

Two security guards from Assam, who worked at the apartment complex, were missing since the day of the incident. A special team of the City police launched a manhunt and arrested them at Howrah railway junction, Kolkata. 

The arrested have been identified as Roopam Bora, 24 and Sanjay Hazarika, 21, hailing from Golghat district in Assam. Police interrogation revealed that the two broke into Kainth’s house on the night of February 6, but the advocate woke up and resisted them. The duo hit Kainth on his head with a brass idol in the house and fled the City.
