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 dead, police said.

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

An employee of a corner store on the same block where the stabbing occurred said he saw Sachdeva come into the store around 15 minutes before the incident.

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

Relatives said Sachdeva was a plumber and father to an 11-year-old daughter and an 8-year-old son.

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

No arrests had been made as of Wednesday afternoon, police said.
