Palghar (Maharashtra) [India], August 22 (ANI): Two unidentified persons murdered a 48-year-old jewelry shop owner in the Palghar district of Maharashtra's Nallasopara area on Saturday.
According to the police, Kishore Jain's hands and legs were tied by the miscreants and he was brutally stabbed about 12 times in the face and head with a sharp weapon on Saturday. The accused persons were trying to rob the man.
