Chandigarh, January 16

While the post-mortem report and findings from the dump provided by the cyber cell of the GRP, Ambala Division, hold the key to solving the murder mystery of the woman whose body was found near the Chandigarh railway station yesterday, there is a possibility of “suspected pregnancy” and her daughter suspects she was killed by an acquaintance.

Marks found on neck

Apart from multiple stab wounds on the woman’s body, we have also found marks on her neck, which hint at strangulation. We are not yet ruling out the possibility of sexual assault, but there is a suspected pregnancy. A doctor

A group of 15 family members of the victim were anxiously seen waiting for the post-mortem report at the mortuary of the Civil Hospital, Sector 6, Panchkula, today. GRP officials walked in and out of the mortuary. It was 4 pm and the doctors continued to examine the body.

The woman’s daughter, however, seemed a little sceptical. She was joined by her brother as she began to talk about her mother’s death.

“I know a man who used to meet her often. He wanted her to leave the job of the cleaner at the Mauli Jagran police station and would often trouble her if she didn’t bow to his whims. We called him uncle and he once had a tiff with my father too, who is physically challenged. I have a feeling that he has something to do with her death,” said the victim’s daughter.

Investigating officer Vilayati Saini, SHO, GRP, Chandigarh railway station, said, “We called one of the persons known to the woman for questioning. The family suspects that the woman was killed by that man. Apart from that, the cyber cell of the GRP, Ambala Division, has been contacted. I have got the dump from where we can trace the location of mobile phones at the crime scene. We will hopefully catch the culprit soon.”

While the post-mortem report is expected to be out tomorrow, one of the doctors conducting her autopsy said there was a possibility that the victim was pregnant.
