A woman’s body was found in a plastic bag in a drain in a Makhurd suburb, which police suspected was a case of murder, an official said Monday.
Some passers-by saw the bag in the ‘nullah’ (drain) in Mankhurd’s Zakir Hussain Nagar in the early hours of Sunday and alerted local police, he said.
When police opened the bag, they found the body of a woman, aged between 25 and 30, with her hands and legs tied with ropes. They also found a “mangalsutra” (a necklace worn by a married woman), bracelets and some other objects on the body, the official said.
Police scanned CCTV footage of the area for clues and also tried to investigate missing persons complaints filed in nearby police stations, he said.
An FIR was registered under the Indian Penal Code Sections 302 (murder) and 201 (which removes evidence of a crime) against unidentified persons and further investigation into the matter was underway, he added.
