Chandigarh, September 11

The naked body of a 35-year-old man was found under mysterious circumstances this morning outside a hotel in Attawa, Sector 42.

The victim has been identified as Sanjay, who used to reside in Attawa and previously worked in hotels. The body was found outside the hotel around 6 a.m., after which the police were informed.

Victim Sanjay

Police said the victim had visited Hotel Jannat on Saturday night to get some work but was asked to leave. However, his wife Shivani claimed that he worked there.

Police further said it was suspected that the victim re-entered the hotel after the staff had slept. “Although the investigation is in the preliminary phase, we suspect that the victim was sleeping in the hotel when someone arrived, and when he tried to flee in haste, he fell down the stairs,” said a police officer.

Police said that although there was a head injury, the cause of death would be determined after the autopsy.

The victim, a resident of Uttar Pradesh, is survived by his wife Shivani and two children, aged seven and three. However, his family claimed that he had been murdered. “The condition in which the body was found strongly suggests that he was murdered,” said Upasana, the victim’s sister-in-law.

The body was taken to the morgue and an investigation was launched at Sector 36 Police Station.
