At around 5.45 pm, JNU's security staff informed the Police after one of the gaurds detected foul smell coming from the forest area.
Soon after getting the information, a team of Delhi police reached the spot and found a decomposed body of a man handing from a tree.
The police have sent the body for post-mortem.
The man was identified as Ram Pravesh, a resident of Delhi’s Nazafgarh. He was a driver by profession.
Though, prima facie, it looks like Ram Pravesh has commited suicide, but police is investigating other angles as well.
According to a police official, the body appeared to be a couple of days old, however, he said the details will be confirmed only after the autopsy.
