A 35-year-old man was found murdered by unidentified persons at Chaderghat area in Afzalgunj here in the wee hours of Sunday. He was attacked with stones and sticks by the attackers, killing him instantly, police said.

Police suspect an extra-marital affair or some previous enmity to be the cause of the murder. The man was identified as Deepak Singh, a labourer who used to stay on the pavement near Sai Baba temple in Chaderghat area.
