Aus: Appeal to help nab killers of Indians

January 24, 2010 15:52 IST

Weeks after two Indians were brutally killed, Australian police have appealed to public to help them nab the culprits even as it re-enacted final movements of the life of one of the victims to get some clue.

Struggling to get some strong leads in the killings of 25-year-old Ranjodh Singh and Nitin Garg (21), Australian police appealed to people to come forward with the any information if they have regarding these murders.

Police said they are interested in hearing from anyone with information about activity in and around a car wash in Yambil Street, Griffith, in early hours of December 29 when Singh's body was found in a partially-burnt state in New South Wales.

Unidentified assailants killed Singh by slashing his throat and stabbing him multiple times before setting him ablaze. The body of Singh, who hailed from Punjab, has been released by the coroner and arrangements are being made to return it to India, police said.

"We're appealing for anyone who may have attended the car wash, or who may have witnessed any persons using the car wash facilities during the early hours of Tuesday, 29 December, 2009, to come forward," police officer Paul Smith was quoted by AAP as saying.

Investigators are also keen to hear from anyone who travelled on the Country Link bus between Griffith and Wagga Wagga on that morning, he said.
