Police on Saturday said they were looking for clues in the rape and murder of a 28-year-old mentally challenged woman from Nepal who lived with her sister here. The woman’s body was found in a field on the outskirts of Akbarpur village on the Rohtak-Hisar highway on February 4, three days after she went missing from home.
Rohtak SP Shashank Anand said, “We have constituted seven teams that are collecting vital inputs. The area from where the body was recovered has been thoroughly scanned. We are also scanning the footage of CCTV cameras installed at various locations between the victim’s home and the place where her body was found.”
According to a doctor who examined the woman’s body, she was brutalised before being murdered. Dr S K Dhatterwal, who conducted the autopsy, said, “Condoms were found in her vagina and pieces of stones in her anus. It appears somebody used a stick-like object to sexually assault the woman. There has to be more than one person to commit such an act.”
On Saturday, State Women Commission’s chairperson Kamlesh Panchal and Rohtak MP Deepender Hooda met the victim’s family and assured all help.
