A 32-year-old man from Faridabad who had gone missing on Saturday was found dead at Ghata village in Gurgaon on Sunday, police said. Police handed over the body to the family after a post-mortem examination. There has been no arrest so far and the Faridabad police is investigating the matter.

The victim, identified as Rohtash Kumar of Keri Kalan, went missing while he was returning home in his car on Saturday night. Police said a missing complaint was filed at Surajkund police station in Faridabad.

The body was recovered by the Sector 56 police around 12 noon on Sunday. Initial reports suggest he was strangulated, said the police.

Kumar, who worked in a private firm, reportedly called his family on Saturday to inform them that his car broke down on Gurgaon-Faridabad road. Following this, his family members booked him an Ola cab, police said.

However, when the cab driver reached the destination to pick Kumar, there was no sign of him. The driver informed Kumar’s family about the incident, after which they filed a missing complaint at Surajkund police station and alleged that he was kidnapped.

“We have given the case to Faridabad police for further investigation. We found his mobile phone with him and it helped us identify the victim,” said inspector Arvind Dhaiya, station house officer, Sector 56.
