An Indian businessman has been found dead behind his hardware shop in the Omani capital of Muscat.
VV Vasudevan, 54, was discovered with his hands and legs tied beside his Land Cruiser vehicle, in the yard behind his store in the Al Hail suburb.
He was last seen at 10pm according to his brother Vijayan Vasudevan, after which time the shop had closed.
Witnesses said the victim looked as if he had been strangled due to marks around his neck.
His family landed in Muscat shortly after the body was found. Vasudevan reportedly had five shops in the area.
