New Delhi: A 55-year-old principal was today
found murdered in his accommodation in the premises of an east
Delhi school with police suspecting his servant who is
missing.

J S Chauhan was found dead with injuries inflicted by a
sharp-edged weapon at his two-room first floor accommodation
in the premises of Sanjay Public School in East Vinod Nagar at
around 1:30 pm by the cleaning staff.

He was staying there alone while his family is in Mamura
village in Noida.

It was his adopted son Tushar who found him dead at
around 1:30 pm. He had come to the school to meet Chauhan, a
senior police official said.

A doctor with whom Chauhan used to take morning walk had
earlier in the day telephoned Tushar informing him that he had
not seen his father.

"He was staying in the first floor of the school. Tushar
gave a call to police at around 1:30 pm, soon after they
discovered the body of Chauhan," the official said.

Chauhan`s domestic help, whose identity is yet to be
established, is missing and police suspect his role in the
murder.

"Robbery appears to be the reason behind the murder. We
are probing all angles," the official said.

A case has been registered and the body has been sent for
post mortem.
