A 75-year-old man and his 35-year-old child were found murdered at their Rajat Path situated house in Mansarovar. Father and child wanted to convert their four-story house into a hotel.
As per police, some of the neighbors living in a similar area intimated the police control room late on Tuesday evening about the foul smell coming out the house. A group of senior cops along with officers of forensic science laboratory (FSL) hurried to the spot to take stock of the situation.
“It gives the idea that murder occurred some days back. Body of the child identified as Saurabh Saxena was found on the first floor of the house and both the hands were tied with a rope while the body of his dad recognized as Rajnayak Saxena was found at the ground floor. The old man was discovered assaulted with heavy weapon,” said Manish Agarwal, deputy commissioner of police(South).
Police suspected that some persons of acquaintance could be behind the murder. “Rajnayak retired from government job and his significant other died few years prior. Both son and father were living together as spouse of Saurabh was living separately,” he included.
