LUC­KNOW: The body of a 25-yearold youth, who was miss­ing since Wed­nes­day, was found along­side a res­i­den­tial apart­ment near Katau­tha Lake in Chin­hat area here on Thurs­day evening.

The po­lice sus­pects that the youth was mur­dered as the in­juries on his face and head clearly sug­gest that he was at­tacked with a sharp edged weapon. The ini­tial probe re­veals that the mur­der could be an out­come of his il­licit re­la­tion but fur­ther in­ves­ti­ga­tions are on in the mat­ter.

The de­ceased, Monu Pal, was res­i­dent of a slum near Amity Univer­sity cam­pus. On Wed­nes­day, he told his wife Su­nita that he would re­turn in a while and left the house.

When he did not re­turn for over 15 hours, his brother Sonu Pal lodged a com­plaint of his mys­te­ri­ous dis­ap­pear­ance on Thurs­day morn­ing. Sonu as­cer­tained his brother’s iden­tity af­ter po­lice in­formed him about re­cov­ery of a man’s body on Thurs­day evening.

In­spec­tor of Chin­hat po­lice sta­tion RN Rai sus­pected it to be a mur­der as the in­juries on the vic­tim’s body clearly sug­gest that he was at­tacked with a sharp edged weapon.

How­ever, the body was sent for post-mortem ex­am­i­na­tion to as­cer­tain the ex­act cause of death, said Rai. A probe was on in the case and po­lice were also scan­ning Monu’s mo­bile de­tails, he added.
