The police, he said, would stop at nothing to bring the case to its logical conclusion in order to dissuade like-minded individuals from committing such horrible acts in the future.

“The investigation team is getting ready to record eyewitness statements, and they are also closely examining footage from closed-circuit television cameras that have been placed in the area,” he added.

Assuring justice to the victims family, he said, the team investigating the case will prepare a robust charge-sheet to ensure the accused faces consequences for the horrible act.
