Police in Delhi have made three arrests following the murder of a well-known hairstylist who was found dead in his home last week.

Bimal Gurang, 28, a brand ambassador of French company Karastase Hair Products, was found strangled early on 6 September in his home in the exclusive Vasant Vihar neighborhood in south west Delhi.

Three men – Nand Kishore, 24, Dalip Sharma, 27, and Pradeep Kumar, 24 – have been arrested, reports Times of India.

‘One of them, Nand Kishore, had sexual relations with Gurang earlier and would get paid for it,’ said deputy commissioner of police Chhaya Sharma, adding that the three men visited Gurang at his home on 3 September.

‘Around 2am on September 6, we found the naked body in decomposed condition. The hands and legs were tied with clothes,’ DCP Sharma said, explaining the motive of the murder was robbery.

Valuables were found missing from Gurang’s home, but the criminals dumped his phone to avoid being tracked and they found there was insufficient funds when they tried to get money from an ATM using his bank card, the Daily Mail reports.

DCP Sharma suggested that Kishore carried out the robbery and murder to feed his drug habit.
