A 23-year-old man was found mur­dered on the road­side at Na­tional High­way-1 (Jalandhar by­pass) on Thurs­day. The de­ceased has been iden­ti­fied as Ankush, a res­i­dent of Amarpura. He had left his house on Wed­nes­day evening.

The body was found bat­tered and naked, with the clothes flung far away from the body and the right leg miss­ing.

The Lad­dowal po­lice have reg­is­tered a case.

Daljit Kaur, the mother of the de­ceased, al­leged that some of their neigh­bours had threat­ened the fam­ily and sus­pected that they had killed her son.

Ankush was work­ing as a sales­man with a com­pany that deals in tea. He left his house on Wed­nes­day evening, say­ing he would be back by the next morn­ing.

His mother said at 7am on Thurs­day, po­lice­men came to her house and asked the fam­ily to iden­tify a dead body that had been found on NH-1. The fam­ily iden­ti­fied the de­ceased as Ankush.

“His mo­tor­cy­cle was found far from the body in a wrecked con­di­tion. His body was full of wounds and it seemed he had been as­saulted with sharp-edged weapons,” she added.

Gur­prit Singh Walia, ACP (ru­ral), said, “We have found pieces of a num­ber plate of a four-wheeler. It may be the case that he was hit by some ve­hi­cle. But we are in­ves­ti­gat­ing the case.”
