On August 16, at approximately 14:37 hours, a woman identified as Pompi Sharma Haloi, aged 45 and hailing from Nalbari, was discovered unconscious near a train coach’s restroom at platform no 2 of Kamakhya railway station. Tragically, despite being rushed to a nearby railway hospital, her life could not be saved.

Swiftly responding to the distressing incident, a combined team comprising Railway Protection Force (RPF) and Government Railway Police (GRP) sprang into action, initiating an intense investigation and search operation aimed at identifying and apprehending the culprit responsible for this heinous act.

The investigation revealed that the victim’s personal belongings, including gold jewellery and a mobile phone, were missing—pointing to the possibility of a robbery being connected to the crime. Utilising advanced technology and keen sleuthing skills, the investigators put the International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI) number of the stolen mobile phone on alert.

The turning point came when the suspect unwittingly used the stolen mobile phone, leading to live tracking. By analysing Signal Data Recording (SDR) and leveraging social media platforms, law enforcement managed to acquire a photograph of the individual who had obtained the new SIM card—a key piece of evidence that further narrowed down the suspect’s identity. Gathering additional information from local sources, the investigators closed in on the culprit’s location.
