21-year-old Deepak Kumar had left his residence last night along with a couple of his friends. Next morning, his body was found close to the railway track in front of the Nalanda Medical College Hospital (NMC hospital) in Patna by some locals, who then informed the police, Senior Superintendent of Police, Patna, Manu Maharaj said.

He said injury marks were noticed on Deepak's head and thigh and the body has been sent for post-mortem.

The senior police official said two of Deepak's friends -- Roshan and Mrityunjay -- who are said to be known to the family as well, have been taken into custody and were being interrogated.

The two have claimed that after having dinner together last night, Deepak had left and they had assumed that he had reached home safely.

Meanwhile, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, who is also the national president of JD(U), visited Bharti's residence and consoled the bereaved family members. In January 2015 she allegedly helped her husband escape from jail.
