ANANTNAG: A male body was found on the roadside in Lisser area of Kokernag in south Kashmir’s Anantnag district on Wednesday morning.
The body was spotted by some locals who intimated the police immediately and the body was taken for medico-legal formalities.
A senior police official from the area told Kashmir Reader that the body was later identified as of Shahbaz Majeed Sheikh, son of Abdul Majeed Sheikh, a resident of Neel Ramban.
“He has some relatives here in Kokernag but, as per them, he did not visit them. May be he was on the way to his relatives place,” the police official said.
He said that an investigation has been initiated into the death.
“There were no visible marks of violence on the body. Prima facie it looks like a case of death due to hypothermia. But things will only get clear once we receive the post-mortem report,” the official said.
