Spike in murders worries police*

WITHIN the first 48 hours of 2018, there have been eight murders recorded, at least four incidents of shootings, and two incidents where women were assaulted by men in their lives.
The latest murder recorded is that of 66-year-old Lutchman Singh.
Singh was shot around 9.30 p.m. in Longdenville on Christmas Eve. He died of his injuries on Monday morning, and, as a result, this incident will be counted in the 2018 murder toll.
This year’s toll has already surpassed the comparative figure for 2017. While January 2017 may have ended with 52 murders reported, the first two days of that month were relatively quiet with no murders recorded.
