Patna: Police in Patna on Monday claimed to have recovered the murder weapon used in the killing of the Central Bank of India ATM security guard who was hacked to death on late Friday night during an abortive robbery bid.

Police recovered a blood-stained sword and an iron rod from near Patna Museum. Based on the current findings, police detained an ironsmith in the Golghar area who has admitted of sharpening the sword and the rod just days before the crime was committed, special investigative team (SIT) DSP Shibli Nomani said.

Besides the ironsmith, police have also detained five other persons in the case.

"We have identified the criminals and we will catch them in a matter of couple of days," Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Manu Maharaj said adding all those in police custody are the residents of Golghar area.

Interestingly, the victim, Kundan Kumar Malakar, also lived in a house near Golghar.

Using the scent on the murder weapon, police used a sniffer dog to trace the criminals. However, after leading the police through a house and a biscuit factory on Buddha Marg all the way to Mandiri, the trail faded and the dog stopped searching further.

While admitting the CCTV at the ATM could capture the face of only one person, police said they had enough information to identify the killers of Malakar.

As reported, Malakar, the security guard of the Central Bank of India located within the Maurya Lok Shopping Complex, was stabbed multiple time leading to his death. Attempt to break open the ATM, however, proved futile and the criminals escaped after making a hasty attempt to hide the body under some chairs.
