The body of a 24-year-old man with his throat slit was found here, police said on Saturday. According to SHO of Baberu Kotwali Police Station Jaishyam Shukla, the man has been identified as Samarjeet Yadav, an undergraduate student.
Yadav was going to Tindwari when the incident took place on Friday, Shukla said.
"At around 1 pm, the body was found near a nullah. Prima facie it seems that the attackers were waiting for him... They slit his throat using a sharp-edged weapon," he said.

The body has been sent for post-mortem examination, police said.
