Indore : Unidentified miscreants killed a homeless youth when he was asleep at a tea kiosk in Sanyogitaganj area. The incident took place on Wednesday night at a tea stall near Dhakkanwala Kua main road.
The youth, identified as Sardar, who used to sleep there in night regularly, was murdered with stones by the unidentified assailants. When a sanitation worker noticed his body lying in a pool of blood, he informed the stall owner, who in turn informed the police.
During preliminary investigation, the police recovered some blood-stained stones at the scene of crime, but no vital clue was recovered from the spot.
However, chairs and other goods at the tea stall were found in disarray and some empty beer bottles and a packet of cigarette were also found in a box there.
It was suspected that the killers may have consumed beer near the kiosk and during their attempt to commit theft at the stall, the victim may have resisted their move resulting in the murder.
The victim used to sleep on a bench after closure of the shop in night, said kiosk owner Pravin Namdev but he could not provide details about his work and sources of income.
No clue was also found about the killers and the motive behind the murder and the police are also trying to establish the real identity of the deceased to trace his relatives, Sanyogitaganj police station In-charge DS Baghel told Free Press.
Now, the police are hopeful to avail the recordings of some CCTV cameras, installed on the main road, where the incident took place. A case of murder was registered at the Sanyogitaganj police station and the police are investigating further.
