In a gruesome incident, a 32-year-old PhD scholar, Kashung Zingran Kengoo, from Manipur was brutally murdered at his rented accommodation in Kotla Mubarakpur on Tuesday night.
The victim’s throat was slit and head almost severed, recalled witnesses who saw the body. The victim was unemployed and job search had brought him to the Capital according to family members.
After completing his doctorate from Tata Institute of Social Sciences in Mumbai, Zingran relocated to Delhi a few months ago.
Phunsghok, a representative of the North Eastern students in Delhi, said the occupant of the third floor of the house first spotted the body.
“He noticed that the door was not bolted from inside and when he went inside, he saw Zingran’s body in a semi-decapitated state. There was blood all over the room and blood marks were visible on the door and the walls . He alerted the landlord who in turn informed the police,” said Phungshok.
The police sent the body for post mortem and informed family members. A knife was also recovered from his room while his belongings were left untouched. According to the police, prima facie, it did not appear to be a case of robbery and they were looking at it as a case of either personal enmity or sudden provocation.
Zingran’s brother Yaorei flew from Manipur after receiving the news said it was on November 8 that he last spoke to his brother. “During that conversation, he did not bring up any such thing which could even remotely suggest that he was under any kind of threat. My brother was a gentle and shy person, someone who had few friends but no enemies. I can’t even imagine him picking a fight with someone,” said Yorei.
