Sangbaykha police in Haa have apprehended two men for alleged voluntary manslaughter, tampering of evidence, aiding and abetting, and failure to report a crime. Both of them are in their early 40s and were arrested on Thursday.

According to sources, one of the suspects allegedly struck a 39-year-old man with an axe on ribs and legs during a heated argument. The man succumbed to his injuries. The other man allegedly destroyed the deceased’s mobile phone and cleaned up the evidence of manslaughter at the scene.
