Thane: The body of an unidentified man bearing multiple wounds was found in Thane district, the police said on Monday.

A passerby on Sunday spotted the body under a bridge in Davle village and alerted police, an official from Shil-Daighar police station said.

After reaching the spot, the police found a paver block near the body and a car nearly 60 m away, which raised suspicion that some persons killed the man with an intention to rob him, he said. The body was sent to a hospital for postmortem.
