NEW DELHI: India on Thursday asked Nigeria to swiftly bring to book the perpetrators behind the brutal murder of two Indian traders, Shanker Saha (35) and Bokul Chander Mondal (35), in an “unprovoked armed attack” on their business premises at Maiduguri in Borno state of the country on July 25.

“The Indian High Commission has also sought a thorough investigation by the Nigerian authorities concerned to establish the precise motive behind this heinous crime (which also left another Indian Biresh Yadav, 43, grievously wounded ), and the perpetrators brought to book,” said an official.

The three victims were working with M/s Adebar Trades and Industries Ltd, which is engaged in processing and exporting gum Arabic since 2007 and employs around 100 Nigerian nationals. “Such wanton attacks on innocent Indians do not serve the cause of peace and socio-economic development as well as the friendly ties between the people of India and Nigeria,” he said.
