A 25-year-old man was found murdered at a public park on the Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER) campus on early Saturday morning.

The deceased, Manoj Kumar, was a resident of Nayagaon and used to work as a washerman on the PGIMER campus.

The body lying in a pool of blood was noticed by people out for morning walk, following which the police control room was informed around 7am.

The postmortem found that Manoj died of multiple injuries and excessive bleeding.

The victim’s head had been smashed and he had injuries on his face as well, said the cops. The viscera samples have been sent to the forensic laboratory, they said.

Police also found empty liquor bottles at the spot. They suspect the victim was having liquor with the accused just before he was attacked. Due to some dispute, the victim’s wife had left him and taken the children to her parent’s home in Burail.

The Sector-11 police have registered a case of murder under Section 302 of the Indian Penal Code.
