Mothibistad Police arrested a 21 year old man subsequent to the murder of a 59 year old woman. It is alleged that in the early hours of Thursday 7 November 2019, the suspect forced entry into the house of the victim and stabbed her to death.

The incident happened in Seoding village. The victim’s neighbors heard noises and a scuffle from the victim’s house. The suspect fled the scene as the neighbors went to investigate.
