Bhubaneswar: Mystery continues to shroud the death of security guard Gadadhar Swain, who was found with his throat slit on premises of a marble factory near Pahala area on March 27 night, with a person named in his handwritten note discovered as his crime accomplice.

Names of the factory owner, his brother and one Dibakar Bhuiyan alias Bubuna had been mentioned in a handwritten note that was recovered from the deceased's shirt pocket.

While the three have been detained for interrogation, police found that Bubuna, who is also a relative of the owner, was involved with Swain in stealing goods from the factory and selling them to a third party. Few of his clients have admitted of purchasing the goods from him.

As police needs strong evidence to prove guilt of the persons involved in the crime, it depends on the forensic report, post-mortem report, opinion of Forensic Medicine and Toxicology (FMT) expert and circumstantial evidence to ascertain the cause of death.

Meanwhile, the handwritten note has been considered as a dying declaration, which is also legal evidence. If further evidence proves guilt of the persons named in it, the case will be pursued against them as per the nature of crime committed by them.
