Hours after the body of a woman was mysteriously discovered dead in the toilet at her husband’s house in New Dirial Tea Estate in Duliajan, another body of a man was found lying on the roadside near Mahabirbari tea estate, also located nearby the oil town on Sunday.
Interestingly, the distance between the two tea estates by some reliable sources is assumed to be around 15-20 km.

A few of the local residents witnessed that the man’s body bore injury marks inflicted by a sharp object.

Meanwhile, police reached the spot and recovered the body and sent it to Assam Medical College Hospital (AMCH) for postmortem.
So far the police have not been able to ascertain the identity of the deceased person.
