According to a report in the Hindustan Times, the deceased has been identified as Sanjaykumar Srisurajprasad Choudhury (28), a resident of the Jadhav vasti area of Wagholi, Pune. He is a native of Jalaun, Uttar Pradesh, a police official said.

"When we found the body, we had to wait for the doctor to tell us the cause of death. We first got to know of the injury on his head followed by internal bleeding and then back-tracked it to March 28," police sub-inspector Suraj Kiran Gore who is investigating the case said.

As per police sources, the two knew each other through the daily wage labourer pick-up spots that they used to frequent together.

"Two days before his death, Choudhury asked Mohite for money to drink alcohol and it led to a fight between them. Mohite hit him in the head with a rod and left him. For two days, he was roaming around with a head injury that was not very visible from the outside and then dropped dead," said PSI Gore added.

In March, the Pune police registered a case of accidental death and launched an investigation. Meanwhile, a source told cops that the two had a fight just before the victim’s death.

Post this, the Lonikand police station registered a case under Sections 302 (murder) and 504 (insult with an intention of provoking breach of peace) of the Indian Penal Code.
