Dubai: An Indian businessman has been found
dead in mysterious circumstances in a suburb near the Omani
capital of Muscat.

The body of V V Vasudevan was found by one of his staff
members with his hands and legs tied near his Land Cruiser
vehicle in a yard behind one of his hardware shops at Al Hail
yesterday, the Gulf News report said.

Popularly known as Vasu, the hardware and building
material businessman was last seen after he closed his shop,
his brother Vijayan said. Incidentally, Vasu`s family had
landed in Muscat back from India, minutes after his body was
found.

"In the evening one of the staff members called me that
something was wrong, when I rushed here, I saw my brother`s
body with his hands and legs tied," Vijayan told the
newspaper.

According to eyewitnesses, the body of 54-year-old Vasu
bore strangulation marks around his neck. "We have no idea
how this happened," his brother said as the police at
the scene called him for an inquiry.
