Jamshedpur : Though 48 hours have passed since wife and minor son of a senior bank official were found lying murdered at their apartment in Mango, police are yet to crack the mystery.
Though the police had called forensic experts and CID sleuths from Ranchi leading them to collect some evidences, including a hand-glove from near the scene of murder for a scientific investigation of the murder, but they are pinning hopes on the CCTV camera footage for tracing the assailant.

The senior police officer revealed that two shirts of Manju’s husband Shashi Prasad are missing from the wardrobe, suggesting that there may be more than one assailants involved in the crime.
