Two of the five have since been released on bail while the other three are still being held by the security authorities for further interrogations. A security source said police have not ruled that out one of the suspects, identified only as R, who shared the room with the victim, is the prime suspect.

It has been reported seven other men of the same nationality lived in the apartment which was rented by the employer company. The source said the security authorities have ruled out suicide.
