The body of a 21-year-old man, who went missing in mysterious circumstances after visiting his relative's house in Seelampur last week, was found near the Okhla Barrage in southeast Delhi's Kalindi Kunj on Tuesday evening. Police said the man's body was found on the Yamuna banks.

The man was identified as Vineet Kumar and he lived with his family at Sunlight Colony. While Vineet's family members alleged he was kidnapped and murdered by neighbours over personal enmity, police suspect it to be a case of suicide.

Vineet was missing since June 13 and his Bullet motorcycle was found abandoned on the DND flyover. Police said the questioning of a women friend of Vineet revealed that he was depressed and he apparently committed suicide by jumping into the Yamuna from the DND Flyway.

Enraged over the incident, the family members and relatives of Vineet gathered outside the Sunlight police station. They said police inaction resulted in the murder of Vineet.

Vineet's father Rakesh claimed their neighbours had been threatening them with dire consequences over Vineet's brother Tanuj befriending a girl named Priyanka, who lives in the same locality.

"His family members told us that Vineet had gone to visit his aunt in Seelampur and was returning home on a motorcycle on June 13. Vineet last spoke to his mother over phone around 6.45 pm. He had told her that he was returning home. When he did not return home for hours, his parents tried to contact him on two mobile phones, but both were found to be switched off," said a senior police officer.

A case of abduction was registered at the Sunlight Colony police station on June 14.
