A man who worked at the Coca-Cola godown at Edathala here was found dead in a car on Wednesday. The deceased, who has been identified as Ullas, 40, was found by his co-workers around 7.30 pm in a car parked in front of the house where he lived. According to the police, the evidence at the spot suggests that Ullas was drinking in the car. A liquor bottle and a glass were found from the vehicle. The neighbours said the deceased was an alcoholic.

Ullas is the son of Thandasseriyil Sugunabhushan, of Avandur village near Mulankunnathukavu, Thrissur. According to his co-workers, the car was rented out on Wednesday. They further said though Ullas had been married for nearly a year, his wife and he were separated. He had also been suspended from his workplace for a week. His colleagues found the body in the car when they went to call him to report for duty in the night shift.

The police said Ullas had been in the car since morning, with the air conditioner switched on and his death could have been caused by inhaling of the poisonous gas emitted by the AC. They added that the possibility of consuming poison could not be ruled out.
