"Another employee noticed a foul smell emanating from his room. When he tried to check, the door of Trilok's accommodation was found locked from inside and there was no response. He then informed the security officials," a senior police officer said.

The police broke open the door and found Trilok dead. He was reported to have been unwell for some time.

"It appears to be a natural death, although we are investigating. The body was sent for post-mortem. Trilok may have died five days ago," the officer added.
