BALLIA: A 22-year-old man was strangulated to death allegedly over a love affair and the body was found dumped near Thekaha-Bakulaha road here, police said today.

"Vishal Chaudhary of Chie Chapra village had gone out of home yesterday evening after receiving a phone call. The youth was later strangulated to death with a rope," Deputy Superintendent of Police Triyambaker Nath Dubey said.

The body was recovered from Thekaha-Bakulaha road this morning, the officer said.
