Delhi Police constable, who had gone missing, found dead
Initial probe suggests that the police constable was given some poisonous substance that led to his death.
New Delhi: The body of a 48-year-old Delhi Police constable, who had gone missing four days ago, was found on Saturday morning, police said. Suresh Singh, was found dead in a forest situated in the cantonment area in south Delhi at around 10 am.
"Singh, a native of Jind in Haryana, was missing since February 19. His missing report was already lodged in Delhi's Anand Parbat police station where he was posted," said a police officer.
Prima facie it seemed that Singh was given some poisonous substance that led to his death because there were no injury marks on his body, said the officer, adding that the body was decomposed.
"Singh's body has been sent for post-mortem that can provide proper reason behind his death. It is yet to be ascertained where he consumed poison himself or there was any foul play behind his death," added the officer.
The victim, who was presently residing in Haryana's Bahadurgarh, is survived by his wife Kamla, 40, daughter Suman, 20, and son Praveen, 16. The officer said that on February 19, Singh had gone to Rashtrapati Bhavan to take some official documents.
"Around 4 pm on February 19, Singh's mobile location was found near Dhaula Kuan area. After that his phone was found switched off and he vanished," said the officer.
