The family of Rai Cement boss Chetan Vyas are still trying to overcome the shock after he was found dead in Kericho county on Tuesday.
The body was discovered inside his bedroom at his home located within the factory premises in Sigowet/Soin sub-county.
Kericho Deputy Police Commander Paul Nasio revealed that the suspects gained access to the house through the roof.
“They lifted the tiles from the roof, gaining access to the house through the kitchen store before proceeding to the bedroom where Siaz was sleeping,” he told Citizen Digital.
His hands and legs were bound with a rope that was also tied around his neck.
The Kericho deputy police commander also said the suspects disconnected the exterior CCTV camera but their images were captured inside the house.
However, it was not possible to identify them since they were wearing masks at the time.
The police boss further noted that the gangsters made away with some bags whose contents are unknown.
The body has been moved to Kisumu County Hospital mortuary with murder investigations underway to establish the motive.
