Thane: A bank watchman fatally wounded in attack by unidentified assailants succumbed to his injuries, police said on Wednesday, adding they are on lookout for the suspects.

52-year-old Lalit Kumar Sagarmal Jain was on duty at the Municipal Corporation Road branch of the State Bank of India in Ulhasnagar township on Monday night, they said.

In the wee hours, two unidentified persons hit him with a beer bottle in which he was grievously injured, added police.
Jain, who was admitted to Central Hospital in the township, died yesterday while undergoing treatment, police added.

A case under section 324 (voluntarily causing hurt by dangerous weapons or means) of IPC was initially registered against the duo which was later upgraded to IPC 302 (murder) read with section 34, police said.

The investigating officer of the Central Police Station said that Jain was unarmed at the time of the
incident.
"Both of them took a room on rent in the locality and started living as husband and wife. After few months, the husband started suspecting the fidelity of the woman," the official said.

He said Dharmender`s suspicion was confirmed when he found his "wife in a compromising position with a young boy living in their neighbourhood."

"He kept quiet at that time but decided to teach her a lesson. On the midnight of August 10, 2010 he killed Sudha by strangulating her and dumped her body in the sewer near his house and fled from the area with his son," he said.
