Police in Om Koi rushed to Wasorta village, nearly two hours from the police precinct, early this morning to find the body of a 70 year old man who had been stabbed to death.

According to police, Dipo Chahae, 49, a resident of the village where the incident occurred, had tied up his wife in his home since yesterday morning. Villagers were too afraid of his threats with a knife to step in to help the wife, who had been crying all day.

In the early hours of this morning, Chapu Naenor, 70, a neighbour, saw that Dipo had left the house. He then went in and released the tied up woman.

On Dipo’s return, he allegedly lost his temper and sought out Chapu, stabbing him in the chest and the heart.
