The body of a missing Class XI student, Baljit Singh (17), of Punjab Agricultural University (PAU) Senior Secondary School today found in the Sidhwan canal on the South City road.
He had gone missing under mysterious circumstances on Thursday.
The body was recovered after some passers-by noticed it and informed the police. Officials at the PAU police station reached the spot and took out the body from the canal.
Manmeet Singh, kin of the deceased, said the boy had gone to school on Thursday but did not return home. Later, on the same night, the motorcycle and mobile phone of the victim was recovered from near the canal.
“We cannot accept the fact that Baljit would commit suicide. The boy was a lively person and had big dreams in life. Even the day he went missing, he was not under any depression. He had left for the school as usual,” said Manmeet.
ADCP 3 Sameer Verma it was too early to comment. Once the autopsy was done, only then the cause of death could be known. Preliminary probe suggests that the body had no injury marks, so it could be a suicide case.
Sources said after the recovery of the body, the boy’s parents were in shock and they were yet to give any official statement.
