Man's body found ridden with bullets

 A 27-year-old man was shot dead by unidentified persons in west Delhi’s Baba Haridas Nagar near Najafgarh. His bullet-ridden body was found on Sunday morning in a drain beside a paramilitary camp in the area.

Police, however, suspect that he was killed elsewhere and then dumped in the drain late on Saturday night to mislead investigations. Police at Baba Haridas Nagar station have registered a case of murder against unidentified persons.

The victim’s father Ravi Kant, a grocery shop owner in Jharoda Kalan, told police during questioning that Paramjeet had been missing since Saturday night.

 Investigations so far have revealed that Paramjeet had left home on Saturday evening after telling his family that he was going to meet some friends. He, however, did not mention to them where exactly he was going and which friends he was to meet.

His family had searched for him later in the night, but had not filed a missing report thinking he would return the next morning.

A team was constituted to probe the murder and Paramjeet’s family and friends are being questioned. Police said the autopsy report would decide when exactly he was killed and which weapon was used for the murder.

Police received a call at 6.20 am on Sunday from a passerby about a body lying in a drain. Paramjeet was lying in the drain with his head facing downwards. Police found he had been shot in his head and face. He was identified from some documents in his pocket.

While a personal enmity is suspected to be behind the murder, police have not ruled out that the killing could be a result of resisting a robbery. Paramjeet had completed his studies three years ago but was currently unemployed.
