(G.N.S) Dt. 6
The bodies of veteran BJP leader Tribhuvan Panchal and his wife Jashoda were found in their residence at Pala village in Lunavada taluka of Mahisagar district. The bodies of the elderly couple, which bore serious injury marks, were found inside their house.
After a preliminary investigation, police suspect the double murder case to be a fallout of personal enmity.
While Panchal’s body was found in the garden of the residence, his wife was found killed inside the house. Police officials of Lunavada said the assailants could have killed Jashoda to eliminate her as an eyewitness.
Deputy superintendent of police N V Patel told media persons that the bodies bore marks of injury inflicted by sharp-edged weapon.
He added that preliminary investigations did not hint at robbery as a reason for the twin murder, adding that further investigations are going on.
