Thiruvananthapuram: The body of a young man was found inside a car at Kaliyikkavilai, near the state border on Monday. The victim, identified as Deepu from Malayankeezhu, was found with his throat slashed. The body was found during a routine patrol by Tamil Nadu police.

Cops noticed a suspicious vehicle with lights on and trunk ajar at around 11.45 pm. Almost 70 per cent of the victim's neck was severed, police said.

In the CCTV visuals aired on Manorama News, a man is seen walking away from the vehicle, presumably after exiting the victim's car. According to the report, police suspect the person was involved in the crime.

Deepu operated a crusher unit at Malayam in  Thiruvananthapuram.
