The woman’s house was checked and there was a foul odour in some parts. The body had been buried after removing a portion of the flooring which was later covered with mud. The remains were exhumed in the presence of a magistrate, said police. The woman and her family are being questioned and arrests will take place as per post-mortem report and other evidence gathering.
