Narendra Faldesai and Prashant Faldesai are being probed in connection with the murder of two tribal leaders burnt alive on May 25.
Panaji: The crime branch on Saturday issued a look
out circular against two prime accused involved in the murder
of two tribals in Balli village.
Narendra Faldesai and Prashant Faldesai, who are being
probed in connection with the murder of two tribal leaders
burnt alive on May 25, did not respond to the frequent
summons, the police said.
The duo was supposed to appear before crime branch today
but did not turn up. Even the enquiry by the crime branch at
their residences revealed that they were untraceable
following which a `look out` notice was issued against them,
The notice implies restraining the duo from crossing
the state borders and leaving the country.
Police have already arrested Dipak Faldesai, who is
alleged to be part of the mob that set ablaze Manguesh Gaonkar
and Dilip Velip during the agitation by tribals demanding
reservation in government jobs at Balli village.
Meanwhile, the crime branch today arrested Govind Gawde
and Malu Velip of the United Tribal Associations Alliance
(UTAA), which spearheaded the agitation on May 25, on charges
of rioting and attempt to murder.
The duo was charged for inciting the mob that had gone
on the rampage after police caned them.
Around 6,000 tribals had in the last month blocked
national highway and railway crossing for their demands.
