Margao murder plot hatched 6 mnths ago, waited for Unlock

The conspiracy to kill Margao jeweller Swapnil Walke was hatched almost six months ago, and the culprits were waiting for an opportune time to strike and execute the heinous plot. The recent lifting of the lockdown, enabling commercial establishments to reopen and facilitating travel across borders, allowed them to purchase the country-made pistol from outside Goa, with which the assailant eventually did him in on Wednesday.
