Financier found dead at his flat with throat slit
A 38-year-old man was found dead with his throat slit at his apartment in Jayanagar on Wednesday evening.

The victim was identified as Suresh Poojary K, a financier and realtor. He was a resident of JSS Circle, 7th Block, Jayanagar and a native of Udupi district, the police said.

According to the police, Poojary was living in a rented flat on the first floor of the apartment complex at JSS Circle for the past one-and-a-half years. He used to stay at this apartment until his work in the city got over and then return to his native place, the police stated.

The murder came to light when his sister came to his apartment in the evening. She told the police that she had been calling Poojary since morning and as there was no reply, she came to his apartment which was locked. She again called him on his mobile phone and could hear it ringing inside the house. Suspecting something amiss, with the help of a few neighbours, she broke open the door only to find Poojary’s body. It was covered with a blanket.

“The victim’s throat was slit and we suspect someone known to him has committed the murder,” said Sharanappa, DCP (South). Police sources said Poojary was last spotted partying with some friends at his house on Tuesday night. Jayanagar police have registered a case of murder.
