The body of the deceased, identified as Roshni, was handed over to the family members after post-mortem. Officers said they carried out her final rites after some protest.
The police said a team of officers had gone to Kodra Grant village on Saturday on a complaint of cow slaughter and caught Roshni’s son Ubaid-ur-Rehman, following which the family and their neighbours attacked the police team. The villagers then opened fire during which Roshni was injured, officers said.
“There was a bullet injury mark as the bullet passed through her body. I am yet to go through the post-mortem report,” said Siddharth Nagar circle officer Pradeep Kumar Yadav. An FIR has been lodged on a complaint by Ubaid-ur-Rehman’s brother Abdul Rehman, he added.
