A team led by Superintendent of Police (SP) Bhim Dahal has started an investigation into the murder of six members of the same family in Madi Municipality of Sakhunwasabha.
A team led by Superintendent of Police Bhim Dahal from the Federal Police Unit Office Dharan reached the spot on Monday night. An investigation into the incident has been started since Tuesday morning, said Superintendent of Police Dahal.
Tracker Dog Piku and Laila have been taken to the scene by the investigation team. According to SP Dahal, a team including a dog started the investigation on Tuesday morning as it was raining on Monday night.
Police had sealed off the scene after finding the body on Monday morning. The body was left at the scene overnight for dog use. However, police sources said that the effectiveness of using the dog was less due to the rain. The dog sniffs and carries the potential accused.
