Teen's battered body floats up in canal

The highly battered and bloated body of a 19-year-old man floated up in the Vrishabhavathi canal in Kengeri, west Bengaluru, on Friday.

Passersby found the body around noon and called the jurisdictional Kengeri police. His legs and hands were tied with a rope and the body bore several injury marks. Police later identified the deceased as Suri, a resident of Chikkalasandara near Subramanyapura. They suspect that he was murdered elsewhere at least three days ago and his body was dumped in the canal. 

Preliminary investigation showed that Siri’s parents had disowned him almost 12 years ago and did not maintain any contact with him. He did odd jobs to make a living, police said and added that they were hunting for the killers.
