During the initial investigation, police had arrested four accused in this case identified as Md. Sakil, Sk. Babu, Sk. Sona and Asit Kumar Das. They were forwarded to the Court on 30th November 2014. Thereafter on subsequent investigation, three hardcore criminals including gangster Dhalasamanta Brothers (Sushanta & Sushil Dhalasamanta) and Arif Khan were remanded in Judicial custody on 8th April 2016 on being arrested in Chauliaganj PS Case No. 12/2016.

The murder of the established businessman in Malgodown was committed as per direction of the Gangster Dhalasamanta Brothers under conspiracy by engaging his hardcore associates and the motive behind the crime was “SUPARI”, said the police.

On 12 November 2014, miscreants shot Mohhamad Farook Tayab, an established pulses trader in Cuttack Malgodown, while he was sitting at his shop as he had refused to pay extortion money.
