- Charred bodies of three men in their 20s found in a room in south Delhi
- Two of the men are from Nepal and the third is from Aligarh, UP
- Bodies discovered by the wife of one of the men, probe is on
The deceased 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 on Friday 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 Deputy Commissioner of Police (South) Surender Kumar said.
During investigation, it emerged that Ganesh had left his house in Kotla Mubarakpur area on Tuesday evening and did not return. He even did not take calls, following which his wife went to his friend Sandeep's home and found the bodies.
Sandeep's parents had gone to Jabalpur to visit their daughter 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.
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.
