A 24-year-old youth was found dead in a drain on the Subhanpur Road on Wednesday morning. The motorcycle he was driving was also found at the site.
Police sources said he was driving the motorcycle and had probably lost balance on Tuesday night and fallen into the drain.
The deceased was identified as Jaspreet Singh, a resident of nearby Dogranwala village. He had got married seven months ago.
"Jaspreet Singh had gone to attend a marriage function in nearby Kanjali village along with his family. At around midnight, he dropped his family members back at home and was again on way to the marriage place," police sources revealed.
"His family members searched him after midnight. In the morning, some passerby spotted him lying in the drain and reported the matter to us," police added.
The police have registered a case under section 174 of the CrPC on the statement of members of the family.
