The body of a youth who disappeared Friday afternoon from a hotel in Pu'liyadi junction in Chaavakachcheari was discovered Friday night with gunshot wounds and hands tied behind his back, close to Dutch Road in Chaavakachcheari, sources in Thenmaraadchi said.

The victim was identified as Wijeyakumar Satheeskumar, 22, a resident of Kandaswamy Koayiladi, in Changkaththaanai, Chaavakachcheari.

Satheeskumar left his home in Changkaththaanai Friday afternoon to a hotel located at Pu'liyadi junction, Dutch Road taking lunch to the hotel owner. The owner, a relative of Satheeskumar, had left the hotel to run an errand, leaving Satheeskumar to look after the business during his absence.

However, the youth had gone missing when the hotel owner returned. His body was found the same night.

The Chaavakachcheari police when notified by the victim’s father of the discovery of the youth’s body declined to visit the scene, due to security concerns.

The Satheeskumar’s father transported the body to Chaavakachcheari Police station Saturday morning.

After investigations, the body was handed over to his relatives.
