A homicide investigation has been launched into the death of a Dunedin man.

Gurjit Singh, 27, who was found dead in Liberton on Monday morning, died as a result of multiple stab wounds inflicted by a sharp object, police say.

Police continue a scene examination at the Hillary Street house.

Police were wanting any information from the public about activity in the Liberton and Pine Hill areas, especially around 10pm on Sunday.

"Residents living in the area with road facing CCTV that may have captured footage of the night are urged to contact police," Croudis said.

"Our thoughts go out to his wife and family, as well as his friends and colleagues, at this distressing time.

"This news will be difficult to process, and police are committed to finding answers of what has happened to Mr Singh and providing closure for his loved ones."
