Kuswant Singh, SHO, GRP, said, “The GRP has recovered a body along with two syringes and some tablets near the Old Godown area. Since the identity of the deceased cannot be ascertained, we will wait for 72 hours before getting the postmortem done. There is possibility that somebody from his family might turn after circulation of the news regarding his death in the media.”
