The place where the dead body was found were filled with various disposable syringes probably thrown out by drug users.
Identity of the dead body could not be established at the moment. The person looks within the age of 30 to 35 years. The body was found lying by localities and by passers by today morning.
City police has collected the body and deposited at JNIMS morgue later in the evening.
It may be mentioned that the North (AOC) area in Imphal West is a well known den of flesh trade and drug peddlers. 
While there were reports that in Manipur about 72 per cent of HIV infection is through sharing of needles and syringes by drug addicts, authorities still seems to be neglecting the rise of IDUs.
