A 28-year-old man was found dead at his rented accommodation in south-east Delhi’s Lajpat Nagar IV on Tuesday, the police said.

The deceased, Sunil Tamang, was from Nepal and was working at a restaurant here, they said.

The police were informed about the incident by Tamang’s landlord. When the officials reached the spot, they found him lying in a pool of blood with sharp cut wounds on the back of his neck, DCP (South East) Chinmoy Biswal said.

When she returned on Tuesday, she found the door open. She entered the house and found Tamang lying dead in a pool of blood, the officer added.

The woman told the police that the two had spoken over phone till late night on Monday.
