Rajouri/Jammu: The body of a 30-year-old man was found hanging from a pole in a village in Jammu and Kashmir’s Rajouri district on Tuesday, sparking a protest by his family demanding a probe in the case, officials said.

Parveen Kumar, a salesman living on rent along with his wife and a child, was found dead at Bareri village in Nowshera area in the early hours of the day, the officials said.

Kumar is a native of Jammu’s Khour. His relatives first staged a protest outside Nowshera police station and later blocked the Jammu-Poonch National Highway near Nowshera bridge.
