The body of an officer of the Intelligence Bureau was recovered yesterday from a drain in Jafrabad, one of the areas worst hit by the violence that has swept northeast Delhi. At least 23 people have died in the last three days, more than 180 have been injured amid violence since Sunday.

Ankit Sharma, who worked as a Security Assistant with the IB, was returning home on Tuesday evening when he was allegedly attacked by a mob at the Chand Bagh bridge and beaten to death; his body was later thrown into a drain, according to officials. His family had been looking for him after he went missing on Tuesday.

After the body was recovered today, Ankit's father, Ravinder Sharma, who also works with the Intelligence Bureau, has accused supporters of an Aam Aadmi Party leader of attacking Ankit and killing him. Ankit was shot after he was beaten, Ravinder Sharma told police.  The body has been sent for autopsy. Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal reacted to the killing in a tweet this afternoon. "Such a tragic loss of life.

The culprits must not be spared. 20 people have already lost their lives. So painful to watch people of Delhi suffering.  Praying that we recover from this tragedy soon n work together to undo damage done to people n communities," he wrote.
