Patna: A man in Bihar scribbled the name of his murderer with blood oozing from his body, just before collapsing to the ground and dying.
The incident took place at Urda village in Rohtas district, some 150km south-west of Bihar’s capital city of Patna, over the weekend. The police are conducting raids to nab the absconding murderer.
Police said 65-year-old Dadan Tiwari, a farmer, was sleeping on the roof of his house at night in the hot and humid monsoon season when his nephew came near him and furiously attacked him with a spade shortly past midnight.
Even after sustaining severe wounds all over his body and bleeding profusely, the victim rushed downstairs and thumped the door of his son who too was asleep in his room.
Reports said, seeing his father in such a critical condition, his son asked him about the attacker. Although he was not in a position to open his mouth and narrate the story, he scribbled the name of the attacker on the wall with blood oozing from multiple wounds on his body, shortly before falling down on the ground.
He was immediately rushed to the primary health-care centre, but the doctor pronounced him “brought dead”.
“When we asked about the attacker, he couldn’t say anything, but just before losing his senses, he wrote the name of the attacker on the wall with blood, using his finger,” the victim’s son Ramesh Tiwari told the police.
Police said they had registered a case and raids were on to nab the absconding accused. “Soon after the case was registered, we raided the home of the accused, but he was found missing. We are conducting raids and the accused will be caught very soon,” local police station in-charge Rakesh Kumar said over the phone on Sunday.
The victim’s son said his father was killed over a family dispute. According to him, his three uncles were pressing for division of the landed properties, while his father always opposed the move and wanted to stay together, saying that a division of the property would not convey a good message to society about their family.
