Ghaziabad, Nov 21 (PTI) The body of a man was found inside a car parked on the Kazipura-Nayphal road here, police said on Saturday.

Two people have been arrested for their involvement in the alleged murder, they said.

The victim, Rashid, had come to the Holy Cross Hospital in Masuri from Pilkhuwa in Hapur district to get his wife examined when he received a call and went to meet someone.

However, he did not return and the police found his body around 7.45 am on Saturday, Superintendent of Police Neeraj Kumar Jadaun told PTI.
