Chandigarh, August 16

The body of a 65-year-old man was found floating under mysterious circumstances at the Dhanas lake yesterday.

The police said Dharampal, a watchman at the lake, said he had seen the victim roaming at the lake alone.

After sometime, the victim's body was found floating in the lake. The police pulled out the body and shifted it to the mortuary at Government Multi-Specialty Hospital, Sector 16.

The police have ruled out any foul play in the incident. There was no injury mark on the body, said a police official.

The official said it was suspected that the victim committed suicide. However, there was also a possibility that he might have slipped into the water, the official said. No suicide note was found from the spot.

The victim was later identified as Sudhir Kumar, a resident of Sector 40.

The police have initiated inquest proceedings into the matter at the Sector 11 police station. — TNS
