A 27-year-old girl was found dead inside a hotel room in the Paharganj area of Central District of the national capital on Thursday.

The deceased was identified as Alka who was a resident of Uttam Nagar area of the Delhi and had checked in with a boy a few hours before she was found dead. The boy accompanying the deceased is absconding.

According to police, the murder came to light at around 3.30 pm when a hotel employee noticed that the door of the room was open. Police said when he went inside to check, he found the woman lying unconscious on the bed. He then alerted senior hotel staff and police were called.

Deputy Commissioner of Police Central Delhi Mandeep Singh Randhawa suggested that the initial enquiry revealed that the woman had arrived at the hotel around 1 PM in the afternoon with a man.

Randhwa further said, “Since the man couldn’t be found after the girl was found dead, we suspect his involvement behind the murder. The girl’s family lives in Uttam Nagar and has been approached for questioning. The body has been sent for a postmortem examination.”

According to the police, prima facia it appears that the girl was strangulated and as the boy was absconding, he is being considered as the prime suspect.
