Charred bodies of three youths found in room

New Delhi: The charred bodies of three youths, aged between 21 and 25 years, were found in a room on the terrace of a building at the railway colony in south Delhi’s Sewa Nagar area, police said today.

The deceased persons have been identified as Sandeep, Gaurav and Ganesh. The room in which the bodies were found was rented out to Sandeep by a railway official who lived on the first floor in the same building, a police official said.

The incident came to light yesterday when Ganesh s wife, Deepa, reached Sandeep s residence looking for her husband.

“The police have initiated an inquest into the matter.

The bodies have been sent for postmortem examination and the initial report suggests that they died of burn injuries,” Additional DCP (South) Surender Kumar said.

During investigation, it emerged that Ganesh had left his house in south Delhi’s Kotla Mubarakpur area on Tuesday evening and did not return. He even did not take calls, following which his wife went to check on his friend Sandeep, at whose house Ganesh often used to go, and found the bodies.

Sandeep lived in the room with his family. His parents had gone to Jabalpur to visit their daughter there when the incident took place, a police official said.

While Sandeep and Ganesh are natives of Nepal, Gaurav was a native of Aligarh in Uttar Pradesh. They often used to party and consume alcohol together.

The trio apparently had a party on the day the incident took place but what exactly led to the death is yet to be ascertain, the official said adding that all possible angles are being probed.
