Man found murdered

An unidentified man, aged around 30 years, was found murdered on the Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) premises in HAL police limits Tuesday morning.

The police said the assailants had strangulated him to death using a nylon rope and later burnt the body.

They had covered the face of the partially burnt body with a plastic cover. Local residents alerted the police as foul smell was emanating from the area where the body was dumped.

Residents of the two newly formed layouts - Manjunathanagar and Sanjaynagar - dump garbage inside the HAL compound. The body was almost buried in garbage heaps, police said.
