A 32-year-old HR manager of a security agency was brutally stabbed to death by some unidentified assailants at Patheri village under Bilaspur police station in the district on Saturday night. The victim has been identified as Parmanand.
According to the police, Parmanand was taken to a field in the village and stabbed 28 times all over his body. The unknown killers left the knife on the spot and ran away. The police have recovered the knife from the spot.
The victim, a native of Muzaffarpur in Bihar, was working as HR manager at Laxmi Enterprises - a security agency located in DLF Phase 1. He was living in a rented house in Gandhi Nagar, Gurgaon, said a police official at Bilaspur police station.
The police said that Parmanand left his home on Saturday to meet some friends. They said that at around 8 pm, their Hyundai Eon car crossed Kherki Dhaula and there were four occupants inside the car.
"It seems that the murder has been committed by somebody who knew the victim. There were stab wounds on his neck, chin, arms, back and other parts of his body. The murder was brutally committed," said Hamid Akhtar, DCP (south).
"We are looking into the case from all angles. The culprits will be arrested soon," he said.
According to the police, after stabbing Parmanand, the killers tried to escape in the car in which they had come. However, the car got stuck in mud and they had to leave the car there.
The body was discovered by the locals on Sunday. The police said that the car had a UP registration number.
Company officials said that Parmanand was a nice man. "He left office after finishing his work at 5 pm. We got to know about the incident on Sunday morning," said RP Singh, an official at Laxmi Enterprises.
