Goa: Police investigations in the Swapnil Walke murder case have taken a rather unusual turn. After obtaining various leads thrown up during the course of interrogation, crime branch officials have now veered around to the view that the motive behind the killing was pure robbery “and nothing more”.
Investigating officer C L Patil told that the robbers zeroed in on Walke’s jewellery shop as it matched precisely their search profile — an isolated location in Margao, Panaji or Mapusa. “They found this place somewhere in August, and were waiting for the right time to strike. The plan was to kill the owner and rob the shop,” Patil said.
