The body of a 25-year-old youth was found in Sukhna Lake this afternoon. The deceased, a Sector 30 resident, was working as a salesman in a cloth store in Sector 19.

The police suspect it to be a case of suicide. However, the actual cause of death will be known only after the postmortem. The Police Control Room received information around 1 pm regarding a body floating in the lake.

The patrolling party of the Lake police post rushed to the spot and took out the body.

The body was taken to Government Multi-Specialty Hospital (GMSH), Sector 16, where doctors declared him brought dead. Police officials said prima facie it appeared to be a case of suicide. However, no suicide note was found.
