A student of Biotech-III year at the SR Institute of Management and Technology in Bakshi ka Talab (BKT) was found hanging from a tree by a belt on NH-24 on Monday morning.

The deceased has been identified as Sujeet Kumar Bharti, 22, a resident of Sitapur district. He was missing from the past two-days. The police have sent the body for post-mortem examination.

On Monday morning, the Bakshi Ka Talab police got information about a body hanging from a tree at the roadside on Lucknow-Sitapur NH-24 highway, said sources. Cops rushed to the spot and brought the body down.

A lunch box and some clothes from the spot were also recovered. However, Sujeet’s colleagues informed the cops that the recovered items did not belong to him.
