A male nurse of Fortis Hospital was strangled to death by some unidentified persons near a liquor shop in Sector 68 here late last night.

The victim has been identified as Arun Bhardwaj (29), a resident of Phase IX and native of Garhdiwala in Hoshiarpur district. The victim, who had shifted here around two and a half years ago, is survived by his wife and a two-and-a-half-month-old baby. His father was also staying with him.

DSP Deep Kanwal said Arun was returning home after his duty at 9.30 pm. He stopped in front of a liquor shop in Sector 68 near the Forest Complex. Some youths, who were already standing outside the liquor shop, had heated arguments with Arun over a petty issue.

They allegedly thrashed the victim and strangled him to death. Later, they fled from the spot, leaving Arun in a pool of blood. Some bystanders shifted the victim to Fortis Hospital where doctors declared him brought dead.

DSP (City 2) Deep Kamal and Inspector Rajnish Chaudhary, along with other cops, reached the spot. Police officials questioned the workers of the liquor shop who were present at the time of the incident. The police informed the victim’s family about the incident.

The victim’s father said Arun had reached home after his duty. After a few hours, he received an emergency call from a doctor, following which he again rushed to the hospital.

A case has been registered against the suspects under Sections 302 (murder), 506 (criminal intimidation), 148 (armed with deadly weapon) and 159 (fighting in a public place) of the IPC.

Kamal said: “We have figured out three suspects in connection with the murder. Five persons have been rounded up for interrogation and their role is being verified. We are hopeful of nabbing the suspects by tomorrow.” The body was handed over to his family members after conducting a post-mortem examination.
