Guwahati: Another member of the Shah Alam gang has been taken into custody in connection with the Ranjit Bora murder investigation.

The arrest was made from Kahilipara locality of Guwahati.

Haren Patgiri was the member of the Shah Alam Gang. He is from Dispur and is 25 years old.

Reports have confirmed that Haren took part in the Mukalmua Heist on November 21 of last year, which resulted in the death of businessman Ranjit Bora.

The prime accused in the murder of businessman Ranjit Bora is alleged to have tried to flee from custody earlier on Saturday morning and was shot dead by police.

A team of Satgaon police shot and killed him near Jorabat in the outskirts of Guwahati.

Shah Alam died after being shot twice in the chest, police said.

Shah Alam attempted suicide earlier on February 10 while he was incarcerated. The authorities claim that Talukdar attempted to sever his hand with the broken portion of a toilet mug after breaking it. However, he was found by the police in a bloodied condition, who rushed him for medical attention.

Shah Alam Talukdar was kept in the Dispur Police’s custody for seven days on February 6. He was the leader of the six-person group who had planned and plotted the murder of the Guwahati-based businessman Ranjit Bora.

On February 5, a number of details pertaining to prior crimes in which Talukdar was complicit had come to light. According to reports, Shah Alam operated Excel Academy in Panjabari of Guwahati, by forcibly occupying the home of an old couple.

It should be noted that on November 21, as manager of the local dairy company Purabi Dairy Ranjit Bora was on his way to the bank to deposit money, two bike-riding criminals rode up and opened fire on him in the Panjabari area in broad daylight before fleeing with the cash.
