Cuttack: In a fresh development in the sensational murder case of Deepak Mallick alias Dipu, in which gangster brothers Sushant and Sushil Dhalasamanta are allegedly involved, police yesterday arrested two more accused for allegedly threatening several key witnesses in the case.
Acting on a tip-off, the Chauliaganj police here arrested the duo identified as Samir Das and Rajesh Barik last night. Earlier in July, police had arrested five persons for threatening deceased Dipu’s father of dire consequences.
Dipu, who was working as a tender fixer and sharpshooter for D-brothers, was reportedly killed by the duo for showing disobedience towards them.
On November 12, 2013, Dipu along with Om, another aide of D-brothers, were beaten to death by the criminal siblings and their associates in a farm house near Ansupa in Athagarh. The bodies were later taken to Jharkhand’s West Singhbhum area and burnt with petrol before being buried to eliminate evidence.
