Auto driver found dead in South Delhi

The body of an autorickshaw driver was found at his brother’s house in South Delhi’s Neb Sarai on Wednesday afternoon. The police have sent the body for post-mortem and have refused to divulge any details about the reason of death.

“We are waiting for the post-mortem report. Prima facie we didn’t find any injury marks on the body. However we can’t say anything at this time. Investigation is on and all the angles of death will be probed,” said a police officer.

According to police the driver was drunk and had returned home late at night. The incident happened on Tuesday night when Puran, 38, went to his brother’s rented accommodation in Neb Sarai as he was too late to return to his home, police said.

He was living with his parents, wife and children in Sangam Vihar area. His brother was not present at the house when the incident happened, police said.

On Wednesday afternoon, the landlord of the house informed police that his tenant was not opening the door. Police arrived and broke open the door.

“ He was found lying unconscious on floor. He was taken to a nearby hospital where he was declared brought dead,” said a police officer.

Although police didn’t find any apparent clue which could say whether he was murdered, his parents allege that he was murdered by some persons with whom he had a scuffle a few days back.

“When the parents arrived at the hospital to take their son’s body they told us about that he might have been murdered and then put inside the room,” a police officer said.

The parents also told police about an incident where their son had a scuffle with some unidentified men of the area. They suspected that Puran was murdered by them. Police, however, have refuted their claims.

“Although we are looking all angles, but the possibility of murder is remote,” said a police officer.
