Identified as 56-year-old S Suresh, he had an injury mark of being struck by a heavy object on head. His body was found inside a flat in Annapurna Apartment in Ameerpet, an area in the heart of the city.
“There are injury marks on his head. He appears to have been hit with a heavy blunt object. We are investigating if someone forcibly entered into the flat or the assailant was known to the victim,” an official was quoted as saying.
