Additional police superintendent Vikram Singh Kushwaha said they have not yet found any link except the pattern as the targets have been guards. “The deaths of Kalyan Lodhi and Shambhu Saran Dubey are clearly linked as police found the mobile phone of Lodhi from the murder scene of Dubey.”

In May, Uttam Rajak was murdered while he was sleeping. On August 29, an unidentified person smashed Lodhi’s head with a hammer. A day later, Dubey was killed after his head was smashed with a stone. On August 31, Mangal Ahirwar was killed by a plougher while he was sleeping.

Police have zeroed in on a suspect seen roaming wearing a shirt and a half pant through CCTV footage.
