Man found bludgeoned

The partially clothed body of a 25-year-old man with his face bludgeoned beyond recognition and hands tied was recovered from Gadra in the Parsudih police station area of Jamshedpur early on Friday.

The victim, whose identity is yet to be ascertained, appeared to have been brought to the isolated spot in Gadra and killed late on Thursday night.

Parsudih police, who received information about the body at 6.30am on Friday, rushed to the spot within half an hour. The body has been sent to MGM Medical College for post-mortem.

Officer-in-charge of Parsudih police station Dayanand Kumar said a murder case had been lodged against unknown persons.

“We suspect that the young man was murdered over some woman-related issue. The assailants had bludgeoned the victim’s face beyond recognition so that he is not easily identified,” Kumar said while speaking to The Telegraph.

The officer-in-charge further said that they had waited at the spot for a long time with the hope that someone would come and identify the body, but in vain.

“We reached Gadra around 7am soon after getting to know about the body. We waited at the spot for three hours, expecting someone to turn up and claim the body. But no one came and eventually we removed the body to MGM Medical College,” he said.

The body would be kept at the mortuary for 72 hours after which it would be disposed of if nobody came to claim it.

“We have already circulated information about the unidentified body through the police control room and also to neighbouring Mayurbhanj district in Odisha,” Kumar added.
