Vasco: In another shocking incident, a 60-year-old man Caitan D'Souza alias 'Kaci' was found dead in his house at Katem, Baina late Sunday night.

The deceased is reported to be running a bar. On the fateful night his wife after downing the shutters came home only to find the front door locked from outside and her husband not answering the phone.

She later alerted the neighbours who managed to break the lock only to find the deceased in a pool of blood with injuries on his head. The house was ransacked and gold ornaments worth around Rs 4 lakh were missing.

Neighbours said the deceased had befriended a man in the last few days and was seen with him almost every day. The deceased had also taken the man to their bar a few days ago and was even seen with him on his bike and sometimes in his house.
