 The police has cracked the case by arresting the accused Ammanullah Bepari, who stabbed the deceased rap picker with a scissor.
While the accused had initially maintained that the deceased might have died after sustaining glass injuries, police investigations later revealed that that accused Bepari had stabbed the deceased with his scissor over an altercation on a petty issue.
Margao police station in-charge, PI C L Patil told the media that there was an altercation between the duo on the question of trimming the beard of the deceased person. In a fit of rage, the accused is believed to have removed a scissor and stabbed on the deceased's abdomen resulting in his death," PI Patil added.
Replying to a question, PI Patil said the accused had initially made the police to believe that the deceased had died of glass injuries.
"The accused even told the neighbours that he had died on glass injuries. It was only after the police investigated the matter and that another rag picker provided a vital clue that the accused from Bangalore was nabbed and booked for murder," PI Patil added.
