The body of a youth was found in a gunny bag dumped in bushes at Handa Khundi village near a cowshed in the Nalagarh industrial area around 8 am today.

A villager noticed the body and informed the village pradhan’s husband, who informed the police. A police team reached there and found that the youth was wearing blue jeans and a full-sleeve black T-shirt but no shoes. A black cloth and a yellow plastic chain and a red and black handkerchief were found tied around his neck. Injury marks were also visible on the forehead. Ligature marks of cloth and a plastic chain were visible on the neck and it appears the youth had been strangulated.

The police examination of the body revealed that the deceased was perhaps in his mid 20s. The body was dumped there while the murder might have been executed somewhere else. Villagers could not identify him. DSP, Nalagarh, Rajkumar said that a villager found the youth’s body packed in a gunny bag near the Kasambhowal cowshed at Handa Khundi village this morning and the police were informed.

A case has been registered and a probe is on, said Baddi SP Rohit Malpani. — TNS
