New Delhi, March 18
The highly-decomposed body of a 66-year-old man from Mauritius was found close to an underpass in the Geeta Colony area here, police said on Saturday.
The deceased has been identified as Bagwath Lutchmee, a resident of Mauritius, they added.
Lutchmee came to India on February 6 on a tourist visa and his body was found on Friday evening after a passerby informed the police, they said.
The body seemed to be two to three days old. It has been preserved in a hospital.
Teams have been formed and a probe launched, a senior police officer said, adding that they are visiting the areas where the deceased had gone before his death for inquiry purposes.
