A murder was reported today morning from Sector 13, along the metro corridor. It happened in the green area adjacent to hotel Radisson Blu.
The police received a PCR call at 7 am regarding a body. The body showed injuries on the throat and the head.
According to the police, the murder happened around midnight. The victim has been identified as 30-year-old Raja Ram. He was a resident of Bharat Vihar Colony near Sector 14 and worked in a garment shop.
Police have reached the spot and primary investigation is on.
A case under IPC Section 302 (punishment for murder) has been registered at Dwarka North Police Station.
Dwarka ACP Rajendra Singh said, “Around 7 am today, a PCR call was received at Dwarka North Police Station about a male body in a park adjacent to Radisson Blu. The local police rushed to the spot. The crime team has inspected the scene. Beyond this, we can't comment at this point.”
The park where the incident happened is maintained by Radisson Blu and is, therefore, well-lit and well-maintained.
However, residents maintained, the stretch from the chowk near Radisson Blu towards Dwarka metro station through Sector 14 is lonely and poorly lit. Some incidents of snatching and loot have been reported from that stretch in the past, they added.
