FALMOUTH - Two men have been arrested and charged in connection with the death of a 60-year-old Indian national. According to a release from Cape & Islands District Attorney Michael O'Keefe's Office, Falmouth police responded to an injury call in the area of 13 Shore Street around 9 p.m. Thursday night

Falmouth police and State Police detectives assigned to the DA's office worked through the night investigating the death of the unidentified victim.

During the course of the investigation, two men, 60-year-old Salwinder Singh and 24-year-old Karamjit Singh, were both arrested and charged with intentionally misleading a police investigation.

A autopsy performed by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Boston revealed that the victim died from blood loss associated with a cutting wound caused by sharp force trauma, according to the DA's Office.

Salwinder and Karamjit Singh both lived at 323 Main Street, Apt. 1, the same address as the Golden Swan Restaurant. The victim and both Singhs were affiliated with the restaurant, according to the DA's Office.

The two men will be arraigned in Falmouth District Court on Monday. The charge of intentionally misleading a police investigation (MGL c268§13B) carries a sentence of up to 10 years in state prison.
