Jammu: Three labourers were found dead inside a tent in a remote area in Udhampur district on Monday, police said.

Balvinder Chand, 28, Sonu Ram, 25, and Anil Chand, 23, were engaged by a company that constructed power transmission towers in the Chenani area.  The three were found dead inside a tent at hilltop Katheer-Gatwal village, officials said.

A police team as well as a team from the Forensic Science Laboratory visited the scene and took the bodies to Chenani hospital for autopsy.

“The exact cause of death will be known only after the post mortem which is being conducted by a board of doctors,” police said.

There were no injury marks on the bodies, suggesting they may have died in their sleep, the officer added. (With inputs from PTI)
