A couple were working in their shop when a bike pulled up with two men with full face helmets on. One of the men drew a M-16 automatic rifle out of a bag and shot at the couple, killing the woman instantly, and injuring the man resulting in a coma.

The woman was identified as 34-year-old Kedsuda Saikiew. The man’s name is currently being withheld.

Police said that the reason behind the murder is most likely due to overdue debt and an argument with the murdered woman’s ex-boyfriend.

Forensic evidence has been collected from the scene and CCTV is being studied to follow the gunmen and identify them.
