Gay angle in manager’s murder in south DelhiApril 22nd, 2008 - 9:40 pm ICT by admin
New Delhi, April 22 (IANS) The murder of a man, who was stabbed several times late Monday in a south Delhi showroom, could be a fallout of homosexual relations, police officials said Tuesday. Narender Kumar, a 50-year-old manager of the Meena Bazaar saree showdown, was found dead with multiple stab injuries on chest, neck and back in the shop in Lajpat Nagar’s central market late Monday.
His body was found in a semi-naked condition, while no valuables or cash were missing from the shop.
“Initial investigations point to the possibility that the murder could be a fallout of homosexual relations. Doctors are performing autopsy, which would throw more light on the case,” a senior investigating official told IANS.
The official said Narender was working with the showroom for last three decades and was a trustworthy employee for the shop owner.
“Narender used to keep the keys of the showroom with him. It is surprising that he went to the shop when it remains closed on Monday. Nobody has seen him entering the shop,” the official said.
“We are trying to know why he entered the shop and who was accompanying him. His family told us that he did not have enmity with anyone,” he said, adding that matter was being probed from all angles.
