A 35-year-old man was found dead in a field near his house at Trikaripur in Kasaragod on Monday.

According to the police, the deceased, K. Priyesh, 33, son of Kodakal Krishnan, a native of Metammal Vaylodi, was found dead under suspicious circumstances.

The deceased was found lying near his bike, and was covered in mud. Small cuts were found all over his body. The body was also found shirtless.
