Father of two murdered in Murray Hill: NYPD

By Alex Robinson

A 44-year-old Murray Hill father of two was stabbed to death a few blocks from his home Tuesday evening, police said.

Arun Sachdeva was found with multiple stab wounds to his chest outside a Korean restaurant on 149th Place just after 6 p.m., according to cops.

He was rushed to New York Hospital Queens, where he was pronounced DOA, police said.

Nothing was taken from Sachdeva and he did not appear to be robbed, the NYPD said.

His wife was too distraught to speak about her husband, who was a plumber, when she answered her door Wednesday morning.

Police would not confirm whether they have a suspect but said someone was being questioned concerning the murder.

No arrests have been made yet, police said.
