The Ludhiana police found the body of a youth outside the First Mall,situated on the Mall Road in the city,on Monday.
The deceased has been identified as Anup Kumar,who originally hails from West Bengal and had been working as a security guard in the parking lot of this building. The parking lot is located in the basement of the building.
Some passers-by saw the body lying on the road and informed the police immediately. SHO Ranjit Singh said,Prima facie,it seems that this youth has been beaten to death. One of his arms and one leg has been broken and there are marks of beating on this face too. There are no weapon marks anywhere. We have rounded up some persons who worked along with Anup and were present on duty on Sunday evening.
The police came to know that on Sunday evening,Anup was sitting in the basement of this building along with some of his friends and consuming liquor.
There is a bank next to this building which is guarded heavily at all times. It is surprising to note that none of the three guards posted at this bank heard any cries for help or saw any one dumping the body out on the road.
