Seven people were found dead in different parts of Noida in the last 24 hours without any visible signs of injury amid heat wave, with police on Tuesday saying the cause of deaths is yet to be ascertained.

According to police, an unidentified person, believed to be a ragpicker, was found dead near Gate No. 5 of Amity University in the Sector 126 area, while a 60-year-old man, appearing to be a nomad, was found dead in Sector 1, Noida.

"In Sector 58, two bodies were recovered in the Green Belt park near Khoda T-point. No visible injuries were observed on the bodies. The local police inspected the scene and sent the bodies for postmortem," police said in a statement.

"Yesterday (Monday), another unidentified person was found unconscious in Sector 61. The individual was rushed to a hospital, where he died during treatment," it said.

In the Expressway area, Brahmanand, 51, a security guard, "suddenly" fell ill and was admitted to a hospital, where he was declared dead by doctors.

In another case, Shyamlal Bashak, a 45-year-old labourer from West Bengal currently residing in Greater Noida, also fell ill and was declared dead upon arrival at the Community Health Centre in Bhangel, the statement said.
