Pune crime: Nigerian national stabs compatriot

Unavailability of information and language barrier has stalled investigation into the murder case of a Nigerian national, who was stabbed to death near Shalimar society in Kondhwa on Sunday around 8pm. The Kondhwa police have arrested Nigerian national, George Aimer (34), for allegedly murdering his countryman, Oscar (25), by stabbing him in the chest with a broken glass bottle.

Police have seized George’s bloodstained clothes and shoes and the broken glass bottle from the crime scene. They are now trying to ascertain the motive behind the murder, and are investigating the duration of stay of the Nigerians in Kondhwa area, whether they possess valid passport and visa.

George was nabbed while purchasing medicines to treat the injuries he sustained during the scuffle with Oscar. Officials said they had altered all the medical shops in the area to inform them the moment a foreigner approaches them to purchase medicines. Owner of the shop where George went to purchase medicines alerted the police.

Inspector (Crime) S D Pochorkar from Kondhwa police station said, “An auto driver informed us that two foreigners were fighting near Shalimar society. By the time policemen reached the spot, Oscar had succumbed to the injuries. Investigation lead us to George Aimer, taken into custody as the prime suspect.”
