Jaipur: A man brutally stabbed to death his friend at a guest house in Bhankrota and escaped from the spot in the victim’s car after locking his body in the bathroom. The incident took place at Jai Guest House at Bhankrota Tiraha on Ajmer Road. When the guest house employees saw blood-stained footprints outside the room, they informed the police following which the gruesome murder came to light.

The deceased was identified as 27-year-old Hargovind, a resident of Itava in Uttar Pradesh. When a Bhankrota police team arrived at the guest house, they opened the room with the keys and found the body in the bathroom. An FSF examination of the spot was conducted.

The body was taken to a hospital for a postmortem examination. According to preliminary reports, the man was murdered with a sharp-edged weapon. Sources said evidences were gathered by the FSF team and the accused has been identified as Narendra.
