DETECTIVES investigating the murder of the world's leading musk dealer are looking for two ''Indians'' who were seen by a caretaker near the office at the time of the attack. Police are also looking for three Nepalese men suspected of smuggling restricted animal products, who they believe may be able to identify the killers.


Indian businessman Chimanlal Gupta was bludgeoned to death with a hammer one year ago. The robbers fled with $6.5 million worth of goods, including 24 kg of musk grains, 14.6 kg of musk pods, and 23 kg of gallstones.
