The police officer had therefore been assigned the gun for operation that he, unfortunately, used to kill his wife and himself,” said Barua. According to Barua, the killing was discovered by Tallam’s colleague at the patrol base who went to check on him yesterday morning. Tallam, he said, was expected to present an exhibit at the court yesterday morning but he could not be traced, only for his body to be found lying in a pool of blood. Police officers recovered six spent cartridges, 14 bullets and the G3 gun in the house.
