Young woman’s semi-nude body found hanging from treeJuly 23rd, 2008 - 8:19 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, July 23 (IANS) The semi-naked body of a young woman was found hanging Wednesday from a tree in a public park in northwest Delhi. The police suspect she could have hung herself after being sexually assaulted. The victim, who appeared to be in her early-20s and was yet to be identified, was found hanging around 9.35 a.m. from a tree in Sector-3 Rohini, a stone’s throw away from the Jaipur Golden Hospital.
She might have hung herself with the sari she was wearing, a police official said.
“She was only in her undergarments when we reached the spot. Initial investigations suggest that she might have been sexually assaulted before she ostensibly hung herself. No suicide note has been recovered,” an investigating officer told IANS.
“We have sent her body to Sanjay Gandhi Hospital for post-mortem examination and things would be clear only after the reports come in. Our priority at present is to identify her and contact her family,” the officer said.
Deputy Commissioner of Police (Outer Delhi) Sagarpreet Hooda said it seems that the incident happened late Tuesday. “Her body bears no injury marks,” he said.
