A 22-year-old construction labourer was strangled to death at an isolated place in Attur Layout near Yelahanka New Town on Tuesday night.

The victim Sagai Raj, a native Veerapura village in Tamil Nadu, was living in an under construction building with his wife, where they were working.

On Tuesday night, Raj left home to get some food. However, did not return even after late in the night. His wife searched for him in the nearby area with the help of neighbours, but in vain, the police said.

On Wednesday morning, a passerby noticed his body in bushes and alerted the police.

The police rushed to the spot and shifted the body for postmortem. The preliminary investigation revealed that he was strangled to death with a rope.
