An unidentified body of a woman was found in a sack in a Bulandshahr village on Tuesday.
The woman bore no visible injury marks and had fresh henna on her hands and feet, police said. A case was filed under Section 302 (murder) against unidentified accused at Galauti police station.
“We received information from residents in Isapur that a body was found in a jungle on the outskirts of the village. It was dumped in a white sack. The woman appears to have been in her early 20s. No identification was found alongside her. We are questioning villagers to ascertain her identity and looking for possible eye-witnesses,” said a police official.
According to police, the body was allegedly dumped early Tuesday to avoid any witness. They have prima facie ruled out sexual violence because her clothes were intact and she did not bear signs of struggle. The woman also did not have wounds suggesting an attack, police said. While the post-mortem report is awaited, the police suspect the woman was murdered hours before the body was found. Initial leads suggest that she did not belong to the area, police said.
