A passerby informed the police about the victim. Police reached the spot, admitted the victim to a local hospital where the doctors pronounced him dead. Police collected forensic evidence from crime scene. Police said it seemed that he was poisoned as two packs of juice were found on the bench where he was found lying dead. A relative of the deceased said he was a bold journalist and had exposed many cases of corruption.
