Jugal Sharma (48), brother of former cricketer Ajay Sharma, was found dead at his house in north Delhi’s Shakti Nagar Sunday. Police said neighbours called police after a stench began to emanate from Jugal’s house on the second floor.
Police said Jugal’s dog was beside the body. “A few liquor bottles were found in the house. We suspect he died two days ago… However, the cause of death will be known only after we get the post-mortem report,” said a senior police officer.
He added that as per the initial investigation, police do not suspect foul play. Neighbours said Jugal was unmarried and lived alone.
Initially, Jugal stayed with his mother and assisted her in running a boutique. Later, his mother shifted to Ajay’s house as she was unwell, said sources.
