New Delhi: The body of an auditor employed with the Central government’s Home Ministry was found with multiple stab wounds in southeast Delhi's Jaitpur area, police said Sunday.

The 43-year-old deceased named Anand Singh (43), a resident of Meethapur, was posted in the Receipt and Dispatch section of the Directorate General of Audit Central Expenditure, they said.


Commissioner of Police (southeast) Chinmoy Biswal said the police received a PCR call at 5 am on July 6 by Singh’s brother.

Police suspect that Singh was killed by unidentified assailants on the intervening of Friday and Saturday.

Officials said Singh's brother found his body and reported it around 5 am on Saturday. He also told police that Singh had returned home late from work after meeting his colleague.

On reaching the spot, the victim was found with stab injuries on his back.

He was taken to a nearby hospital, where he was declared brought dead, the officer said.

The post-mortem was conducted at AIIMS after which the body was handed over to the family, the officer added.

Singh's 16-year-old son, Pradeep, told police that his mother woke him up at around 3 am and told him that his father is lying in a pool of blood.

“The murder took place after 11 pm on Friday. We found out when mother went inside at around 3pm  and she felt water under feet. When she switched on the torchlight of her phone, she saw that coller had fallen over her husband and he was bleeding profusely,” Singh’s daughter said.
