Nongpoh, May 13: Fear and uneasy calm have gripped Erpakon village in Ri Bhoi district following recovery of battered and bloodied body of  38-year-old Kyrmen Lyngdoh Nonglait of the village on Saturday evening. Nonglait was found lifeless on the village road sparking suspicions of foul play.

According to sources, Nonglait, a resident of Erpakon village, was last seen seated on the village road at around 8 pm accompanied by an individual employed at a nearby hotel. Villagers later discovered Nonglait’s body in the same spot, while the worker who was seen with him, was conspicuously absent, prompting concerns among the deceased’s family members latter’s potential involvement.

Villagers who stumbled upon Nonglait rushed him to Civil Hospital Nongpoh for urgent medical attention.
