Chandigarh, August 3

The probe into the mysterious death of an elderly man in Sector 10, which the UT police had claimed to be a case of suicide yesterday, has taken a new turn as it is now being suspected to be a case of murder.

The police have started investigating the matter and facts are being verified.

Sources said a servant, identified as Luv Kush, who was a suspect, had gone missing after the incident. However, he was later rounded up and was being questioned by the police. The victim, Amrit Singh Thapar, a resident of Delhi, had arrived with his wife to stay with his son around 15 days ago. He was found dead in the washroom of the house yesterday morning. The police had earlier claimed that the victim had hanged himself with the help of his turban in the washroom.

The sources said the victim's family also visited the Sector 3 police station today and demanded a thorough investigation into the matter.

The police today again visited the victim's house to investigate the crime scene.

DSP (Central) Krishan Kumar said the matter was under investigation as it was suspected the victim might have been murdered.

The victim's autopsy is yet to be conducted as his Covid test report is yet to be received. — TNS
