On the intervening night of Friday and Saturday, when Munaje was alone at the bungalow, some unidentified people entered the premises by cutting through its window grilles, he said.

They apparently tied up the victim's hands and legs with some pieces of cloth and then allegedly beat him till he died and fled the premises, he said. The maid who came to the bungalow the next morning for her chores spotted the body inside the house and informed the police, the official said.

The body, which had several injury marks, was later sent for a postmortem, he said. A case was registered under Indian Penal Code Sections 302 (murder) and 460 (house-trespass or house-breaking where death or grievous hurt is caused), he said.

It is still unclear if there was anything missing in the house as there was no one else living with him at the bungalow. The police said that a search was on for the assailants.
