The body of a man was found inside the servant quarters of the Rashtrapati Bhavan, police said on Friday.

The man was a Class IV employee and worked at the President’s Secretariat. He was unwell for some time, police added.

A foul smell was emanating from the servant quarters, following which the neighbours alerted the police. The room was found to be locked from inside, police said.

The body was sent for autopsy and no foul play is suspected, they said.

Police suspect that the body was lying there for two-three days since the man’s family was out of town.
