The decomposed body of a 40-year-old AIIMS doctor was found hanging from the ceiling of his rented accommodation in south Delhi’s Hauz Khas area on Friday afternoon, police said.

The police received information about foul smell emanating from a house in Gautam Nagar.

“After reaching the spot, a decomposed body of a male was found hanging in a room on the second floor. The room was locked from inside. The deceased was later identified as Mohit Singhla,” Deputy Commissioner of Police (south) Atul Kumar Thakur said.

He was doing research in the Department of Paediatrics at AIIMS here and last attended office on Tuesday, the DCP said.

He was a resident of Panchkula in Haryana and had been residing alone in the room since 2006, police said, adding that the proceeding under Section 174 of the CrPC had been initiated. PTI
