New Delhi: With hands and feet bound in telephone wire, the decomposed body of a 33-year-old man was found inside his house in outer Delhi's Dichaon Kalan village on Sunday morning, police said.

The body of Bhim Singh, a labourer, was found in the house after the neighbours complained of a foul smell from one of the houses in the area, they said.

 

Family members of Singh said that he was missing since February 7. His family earlier used to live in that house and had moved to a new house a few metres away some months ago, a senior police officer said.

It is suspected that the murder may have been committed by a family member since they knew that Singh was a homosexual and it could have been a matter of family reputation, the officer said.

Singh's mobile phone was found lying near his body and the main door of the house was locked form outside, police said.

A case has been registered at Baba Haridass Nagar Police Station and a man has been detained for questioning.

 

The body has been sent for post-mortem, they said. "During the probe, we have come across a private number from which Singh had received 24 calls on a single day," an officer said.
