Subject: A Strange Murder!
This happened in India in Gurgaon very recently.

At a toll plaza, a white Bolero jeep was stopped on September 23, 2011, at booth number 16, for collecting the toll tax (regular tax which is paid to government by every vehicle passing through). An altercation ensued between the driver of the vehicle and the toll collector for some unknown reasons (It might well be for as trivial an issue as change of currency!). The toll collector tried to shut close the window of the booth but after a while this driver shot the toll collector and drove away. The hapless young man died on spot.

Why did the murderer shot this 22 year old toll collector who was not an acquaintance? There seems to be no premeditation of this crime whatsoever!

Did he shoot him for a meagre sum of 27 rupees (The sum he had to pay as the tax at toll plaza?)


(*chuckle*)

Was it anguish or whim?

Police searched for the perpetrator but he was far beyond their reach, then, after three days of investigation, they caught the murderer hundreds of miles away in Shivpuri district.

The murderer left almost no clue to solve this case while committing the crime. The CCTV footage showed a very vague image of the murderer.
Strangely enough the murderer was caught because of his own mistake. The mistake which he committed 40 minutes after committing the crime!

The murderer sent his friend back to toll plaza, after about 40 minutes of the fatal tryst to the booth number 11 (the crime was committed at booth number 16), to enquire about the follow-up of the event because of anxiety. Though the murderer did not leave a hint, his friend did. The CCTV footage of the friend of the murderer was clear and hence he was caught. He was compelled to help police in arresting his friend.

Meanwhile murderer changed the designer stickers on the vehicle and removed the black strip which was there on the Jeep to camouflage it. Police had a hard time tracking down the vehicle.

Why this murder was committed is not clear to me. What was the cause of this burking? There is no information about the background of murderer yet.

Do let me know your views on this strange killing of an innocent young man.

perhaps he had just purchased an illegal weapon and was eager to try it out. maybe he picked a fight with the toll booth operator, hoping to find some reason for insult so he could wave his weapon around. or it could just be that he was psychotic, or mentally ill.

More or less, I agree with thee on this!
